oh, i tho't of some more "formal jobs":
* primary nagios god
* osiris god
* other-monitoring gods

note that the box is working for both sf-lug and balug.
thus there are three concerns: those of sf-lug only,
those of balug only, and those that make sure the
box itself is happy and a good internet citizen.
