    Thanks for reminding me about it ;)

    I didn't, I actually hoped it would work with older twisted too ;)

    You don't need to reboot them, however I can't trust past uptimes or it
    would be way too easy to fake the results (it's still easy but it takes
    a lot more effort).

    This is the objective yes.

    So it sounds like the next thing to do is to extend the protocol to add
    an _optional_ reporting of more info on the subsystems and hardware
    involved (turned off by default). About the oopses that will require
    kernel changes, and as per previous emails that'd be a very interesting
    feature to enable optionally too (via sysctl etc..).

    The old protocol (number 0) will stay, infact that will remain the
