Downtime - Electricity Outage

Filed under
Site News

My apologizes for the downtime this afternoon, but the electricity went off and stayed off for approximately 3 hours.

It must have been pretty bad because it usually don't take our electric company that long to get service restored. Not just that, but it blinked twice over that period, as if they threw the switch but the breaker kicked back off.

I don't know what happened, but when I called to report the outage, the lady said they had outages all over town. After the first hour I could see lights restored downtown, but it's always like that.

But anyway, besides being offline to my visitors, I lost almost 120 days uptime. That seems to be the magic number around here. Each time I just almost hit that mark - something takes my server back down. Looking on the good side, now I can boot a new kernel. Big Grin

So anyway, sorry.

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
