Welcome to Tigris

    The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family and the largest and possibly most dangerous of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, the tiger is an apex predator and an obligate carnivore. Reaching up to 3.3 metres (11 ft) in total length, weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds), and having canines up to 4 inches long, the larger tiger subspecies are comparable in size to the biggest extinct felids. Aside from their great bulk and power, their most recognisable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes that overlays near-white to reddish-orange fur, with lighter underparts. The most numerous tiger subspecies is the Bengal tiger while the largest subspecies is the Siberian tiger.

Wait... What?

This present site is the placeholder page for the tigris.fr domain, formerly leapingtiger.org. Said domain is a tiny group of mostly private servers, some of which — read: one of them — are hosting a few public resources. Go check out the Links section for directions to more interesting places. Fear not, they're not all related to tigers.

The domain name — obviously (un)inspired from the tiger's latin name — is in no way related to other tigris websites. All former resources from leapingtiger.org can be accessed on tigris.fr as well. If your website is hosted on tigris and seems unreachable, you may want to check the Network Status page.

2019-12-23: Faulty hard drive replacement

I got alerts from mdadm this morning indicating, via a pretty terse DegradedArray message, that /dev/sda had died.

I want to praise OVH for how fast they fixed the issue. Within a few hours, the fault was confirmed, the hard drive physically replaced and as of this post, the RAID array is happily rebuilding.

Apart from the fact they had to reboot the server around 15:47, there were no other issues. But as usual, do yell at me if something seems missing or corrupted.

Planned Interventions

I'm a bit too busy to do proper planning these days. I mean to do the things listed below. At some point.
