Tux Machines (TM)-specific
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.
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.
