intermittent downtime

Filed under
Site News

The intermittent downtime today and last week was due to loss of electrical power in the neighborhood. Seems our electric company can't keep the power on anymore. Last week a storm blew in for about 5 minutes, but that heavy rain was enough to take us down several times that day. Today there were no winds or rain, I guess the sun was shining a little too brightly.

For those still interested, I do still plan to seek off-site hosting soon. I had to put moving onto the back burner while I fulfilled my other obligations and I need to secure some more permanent income, but unless things go too wonky, I will find some inexpensive hosting at the end of this month or early next month.

Thank you and my apologies.

If you are looking for help, let me know.
I can get you jump started with Amazon EC2.

You can go to my website and find a link to the EC2 estimator to get a handle on your monthly cost.

    Ekiga 5 has progressed a lot lately. OpenHUB is reportin a High Activity for the project. The main reason behind this is that I am again dedicating much of my spare time to the project.

  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
