downtime (updated)

Filed under
Site News

We've suffered two occurrences of downtime within the last 4 days due to loss of electrical service in the area.

There was an outage on Christmas Eve for little over an hour and one this evening of approximately two hours. I guess that dependable service spell is over now and we can expect little downtimes like that from now on. Sad

UPDATE: Yes, that's right. Less than an hour after this evening's outage was restored, it went out again for another hour.

We have a winner! Fresh Linux Mint 17.1 – hands down the best

Linux Mint 17.1 is the first example of what the Mint project team can do when they're focused on their own system rather than on making the latest Ubuntu work with Mint.
