So I made some progress here (after a rather hectic week, my fault for
not staying in vacation):

- we have now 2 internal DNS servers (gonna test and switch internal
builders, etc once I validate them, I will likely do them by small

- I start to switch to nftables for the firewall (not enabled yet, I
will announce in advance and do that outside of working hours)

I also upgraded the firewalls from the Copenhague airport last month
and proxys today to F28, but since no one complained, it show this was
pretty transparent (and resilient)

Next step is squid, then work on moving munin inside the lan, and
postgres. (and make postgres in HA too)
