Woohoo, we're back

What a night. We went down yesterday due to hardware failure in the server.

I thought it was the motherboard, so I switched it out with one I had on hand, but the server still would not start. So, I figured it must be the powersupply. I had to wait until this morning when a paypal transfer was received to go get one.

Well, after it came back up, some device numbers were switched around and I had to iron that and the firewall out.

But I think the biggest issue is that No-IP isn't updating properly. tuxmachines.org got a new IP after the downtime and No-IP client didn't seem to transfer the info back to No-IP servers. After I went there and changed the info manually, we are now back.

I'm so far behind in looking at the feeds and email news alerts. And I have to do some for work for ostatic and linuxjournal. And my head hurts. Big Grin

But we are back and I'll have the news updated real soon. ...or in about an hour or so probably.

Thanks everyone for not giving up on us.

Power supply can work forever, but dust can prevent effective cooling. Vacuum every once in a while will keep it healthy.

Lately, it had to work harder because of internet downloads(html5?) are longer from new Drupal webpages, overload your power supply.

When did you get out? Big Grin

Happy you're back

I'm just reading this, but that day, I was hardly trying to visit the page with no luck.

I can see you have tuxmachines' server at home with you. Nice I wish I could do that too. Smile.

Some weeks or maybe months ago, Firefox, was complaining about your site being dangerous and did not let me go inside for some hours.

  • No more Android Wear watches says Samsung, Tizen all the way !
    Samsung has been getting pretty serious about its Smartwatches and has certainly excelled with its latest creation, the Tizen based Gear S2. The company has had a little dabble with Android wear in the past, with the Galaxy Gear Live, and since has been focusing on Tizen. According to a report from Fast Company stating that “no more Samsung Android Wear devices are in development or being planned.” This is according to a Samsung executive. The report goes further to say that Samsung executives are going with Tizen because it’s “far more battery-efficient than Android Wear” and “the standard OS on other Samsung products from TVs to refrigerators.”

  • Linksys Sees Value Open Source Market for WRT Wireless Routers
    The wireless router world remains safe for open source -- at least for users of certain Linksys Wi-Fi devices, which will still allow the installation of open source firmware like DD-WRT after new FCC rules take effect next week. Here's the back story: Last fall, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) introduced new regulations that required device manufacturers to ensure "that third parties are not able to reprogram the device to operate outside the parameters for which the device was certified."
