This coming Monday evening would work fairly well for me.  Tuesday Jun 10 
works okay, and then I'm busy or out-of-town the evenings until Thu 6/19 
(when I am free or possible-to-be-free again).

Freaking yes, that'd be awesome.

My server in Japan, where I have an IPMI card installed but not properly 
set up, recently kernel panicked.  The nice people in the lab where it 
runs rebooted it, but took this picture of the console first: 

It sat there like that for almost one full day before anyone knew what had 
happened.  Mea culpa for not setting up IPMI (and I, for one, plan to 
waste a full Internet-routable IPv4 address on it as soon as I can...).
