Server/Forum down times
« on: June 04, 2016, 10:59:22 AM »
Server was down due to a dead power supply in an upstream piece of equipment.
Damn, there goes the uptime (gotta love linux): up 980 days

was wondering what happened
  thanks for the explanation

"Life isn't about trying to survive the storm; but about learning to dance in the rain" - unknown
Luck is what happens when Preparation meets Opportunity

Prepping makes even a hurricane just an inconvenience.

After 980 days I guess we can tolerate one reboot.

I started to get the shakes,so I listened to a couple of TSP Podcasts and took a nap....and now it works!!!!
Good work guys!
Why is it that the same people who use science to convince you of Global Warming,refuse DNA Science that proves you are male or female.

Government solves few problems that it does not first create.

Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

I've reached the age where there is little left to learn the hard way.

If you had only one year,one month,or one day...Would you live your life differently?

I immediately recognized this as the first step of martial law, donned gas masks, and retreated to my bunker.

Honestly I didn't notice. The page didn't load when I spun up the laptop but I was too busy stripping the stain off my deck to be disappointed.

These things will happen. All things manmade fail from time to time.
Livin on a thin line, tell me now what are we supposed to do?

Archer and I plan to reboot both of Jack's servers on Monday 1/15/18 some time between 9:45 AM and 12 noon Pacific time.

This will affect
  thesurvivalpodcast.com
  survivalpodcast.net
  grandaddysgun.com
  tspwiki.com
  walkingtofreedom.com
  ninemile.farm
and a few other sites.

Normally this causes only a few minutes of outage, during which you'll receive nothing at all (not even an error message) from the websites hosted on that server.  So don't panic. 8)

We'll have a few more minutes of downtime (on the forum only) Tuesday 1/16/18 around 10 AM Pacific.  A few people are reporting oddities in their read/unread posts, so I'm going to run some database repair and testing routines.  Oughta take 5 or 10 minutes.

We will be restarting both of Jack's servers AGAIN in a few minutes.  (More updates related to the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" vulnerabilities.)

This will affect
  thesurvivalpodcast.com
  survivalpodcast.net
  grandaddysgun.com
  tspwiki.com
  walkingtofreedom.com
  ninemile.farm
and a few other sites.

Expect a few minutes of outage.


On second thought, maybe we won't. ;D
