crossgrading Linux: it's on the horizon, and it looks pretty easy in fact. it's too bad there's no plan to have multibin debian, though, that could allow 64-bit applications to reside concurrently with 32 by using /bin64, /usr/sbin64, etc. your PATH variable would determine which has precedence.

of course I don't want it badly enough to do the work myself, so I'm stuck with what they give me. anyway, I have lots more urgent stuff to take care of, such as the planned shutdown of my primary nameserver/webserver and moving its contents to the new VPS the company gave me. I've only got 6 weeks left to take care of that.
