Last, well one of I'd like to think, step in the little computer resurrection project - getting CrashPlan set up and running. You're never done until you've planned for being undone by a disaster.
It was the usual installation of Java, which I always install manually, set up a few symbolic links to make future upgrades easier. That process was slowed down slightly by my forgetting I could not use the server JRE since this machine is not 64 bit. Cross that hurdle, run a couple Java checks. finish the installation of CrashPlan, configure the installation to do the off-site back up of content this Debian installation is serving, and we're off.
