Which rack was moved? The mini-rack, or the shelf blocking a ladder?

Yes, DSL works, but it got disconnected from the switch. I've got to
cable into the console port of the switch to see which port it should
go it.
Once done, it'll bridge in minotaur and pony into Sonic.net

Bikeshed is a Soekris net5501, I think. It's missing.
The net6501 up there is the new minotaur.

Yeah, when I looked it was getting bridged into Monkeybrains with no
router. It seems to luck of the draw if DHCP works.

Yes, I'm excited to get this repaired.

Just need to somehow find the bikeshed Soekris router and get ladder
access going.
