Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
For those not also on AusNOG - we've been having a play with this today,
and enjoying it considerably more than certain previous IPAM and DCIM
About half of AusNOG seems to have turned up in the IRC
channel, #netbox on Freenode.
See you there.

Subject: [AusNOG] IPAM/DCIM - NetBox
Long time listener, first time caller.
Thought people still use excel spreadsheets as their IPAM would find
NetBox interesting and useful. https://github.com/digitalocean/netbox
There's a live demo at http://netbox-demo01.packetlife.net/
We're looking for someone to provide us with smart hands assistance (rack, stack and remote console) around Auckland and Wellington.
Just wondering if anyone here could help us out with some recommendations.
On behalf of the Trustees, I'm very pleased to announce that from the
23rd-27th of January 2017 the conference will be held in the Bay of Heaps,
or more specifically, Tauranga.
The venue is http://www.trinitywharf.co.nz - A couple of the trustees have
visited the venue and they report it is a great spot. I know I'm looking
forward to seeing you all there.
I encourage all of you that are planning on going to book accomodation now.
Book early and book often. We'll have more information up on the website
soon about accomodation options. We'll let you know when that's up. I'll
say it again, book now. At the venue, down the road, your mates place,
whatever - it's the Bay of Plenty in January. You get the idea.
For those of you out there seeking to sponsor this conference, then please
get in touch with us via sponsorship(a)nznog.org (subject: sponsor)- we'd
love to hear from you. For our good friends and sponsors from previous
years, I'll be getting in touch with you next week. As always we sincerely
appreciate your support.
Now that we've got the venue sorted out we'll be sorting out registrations
and all the rest of it which brings me to:
Once again we'll also need to assemble a program committee.
Eligible PC candidates are those who have attended NZNOG conferences in the
recent past, have broad technical knowledge of Internet operations, and
have reasonable familiarity with the format of NZNOG conferences.
PC members are expected to work actively to solicit content for the event
and review submissions for technical merit.
What the PC do and come up with is the most important thing for the whole
If you are interested in joining the PC send a brief note to "trustees at
note should include affiliation (if any) and contact details, and a brief
description of why you would make a good addition to the PC. PC members
receive complimentary registration for the event.
Finally, can I just add that in what seems to be an ongoing climate of
consolidation and acquisition, now is the time for all operators to get
together to discuss what smart new things need to happen to keep moving the
packets faster and better. There is always a better way.
on behalf of the NZNOG Trust.

In the case of Cook Islands Telecom the problem is not directly with them - its their one-up upstream Spark NZ (AS4648) who appears to be flicking this route across a number of transit upstreams (http://bgpupdates.potaroo.net/cgi-bin/per-prefix?prefix=22.214.171.124.21)

Anyone aware of a major fibre cut today in NZ that may have taken UFB
services down for several ISPs?
A certain ISP is claiming "all ISPs affected" but we haven't seen any
issues with the carriers we use.
