I'm Jon Cram, a software developer and interface designer living with my wife and cat on a boat near London (UK) in a house in Cardiff. I work for Box UK Lime Green Tangerine myself on a new startup.

I work mostly with web apps, developing in PHP for quick-and-easy bits and Java for heavy-duty bits.

I recently discovered that Grails is the best thing ever.

I own and run Hosting Reborn, the UK's first pay-as-you-go web hosting service.

comment Ubuntu “No space left on device” for /home, df shows 100% full, ds shows much, much less
This may well have been it. There were some very large log files related to this. I've just rebooted the machine and df -h now shows more what I'd expect. Since things are now fine I can't be sure of the cause. I expect this issue may arise again in a couple of weeks. I'll mark this as the accepted answer then if that's the cause.

comment Upgrade coreutils on CentOS 4.8 server
Brilliant - an excellent option for getting the newer dd without disturbing the current coreutils binaries. I agree that playing with coreutils is a risky process!
