Final Etch Upgraded

I upgraded my last Debian etch server today. Etch is end-of-life in a little over two weeks so the upgrade is a little late, but I actually first discussed it with the customer last September. I don't have remote access to this server so a normal weekend upgrade would require someone to give up a few hours on a weekend to let me into the building. Scheduling that someone proved impossible.

I finally decided to just do it late on a Friday during normal business hours, and let them deal any disruptions. Since it didn't seem to bother them too much, I won't worry about scheduling the next upgrade for the weekend. Thankfully, major upgrades are an infrequent occurrence with Debian.
