Short outage Sunday 11/27/16 for server reboot
« on: November 26, 2016, 01:33:44 PM »
It's time for an operating system update on both of Jack's dedicated servers.  This will happen around 11AM-12noon(ish) on Sunday 11/27.  Expect a several-minute outage on all of Jack's websites (including this one).

The main tsp server is only up for 179 days since the ISP had a power issue.
The other server has been up for 849 days...
gotta love Linux!

Gonna try again this Sunday, 12/4/2016 @ 11am pdt.
The bad drive on the UK server was hot swapped and should be good to go.

Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this!

Ya know, the more I think about it the madder I get.  Our motto, what we believed down in our heart, went something like this "ye though I walk through the Valley of Death we will fear no evil...for we are the baddest mother strawberry pickers in the Valley".
