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.

  • System76 'Lemur' and 'Galago Pro' Ubuntu Linux laptops get 8th gen Intel Core CPUs
    The famed Linux-laptop seller also says, "The Lemur you know and love is now even better with the Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads, allowing you to multitask up to 40-percent faster. The slim, 3.6 lb laptop with impressive 14.1-inch 1080p IPS display is still your perfect travel companion; easy to carry from meeting to meeting or across campus." New processors aside, these laptops should be pretty much identical to prior generations -- which is a very good thing. If you want to configure a Lemur with a Coffee Lake chip, you can build your own here. A Galago Pro with an 8th Gen Intel Core processor can be configured here.
