Jul 9 02:38:34 netsoc ngircd: Server "irc.csn.ul.ie" registered
(via irc.netsoc.tcd.ie, connected to prodigy.redbrick.dcu.ie, 3 hops).
Jul 9 15:31:38 netsoc syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
Jul 9 15:31:38 netsoc syslog: syslogd startup succeeded
Thats small extract from messages ... nothing happened between 0238 &
crash, and first thing after crash was syslogd heh.
dmesg shows nothing interesting - yet again.
Sorry for lack of information earlier, no SSH from work, so can only work
Thanks for suggestion there Conor, I'll look into that site & software you
specified, hopefully help in some way,
