Since "last week": I have

What's left for Milestone 0? Nothing really, apart from cleanup. There is a shockingly large amount of "arbitrary" involved in deciding what goes in which nix file, and there really ought to be some kind of principled separation of what/where/how (what the app does, the specifics of the hardware where it runs, and the implementation details), and there are other cleanups to do too. Also need to do something like overlays so that the packages defined in nixwrt override the ones in nixpkgs. Also also need to update it to work with nixpkgs master - or at least with 18.03 without my random patches. Also also also add e2fsutils so we don't have to plug the USB disk in somewhere else just to fsck it.

In other news, if you can read this then you are looking at my new shell host and the DNS for ww.telent.net has updated. Still haven't moved everything off the old one, but this is just one more step (and a large one) along the way.
