Again I'm in the awkward position of having to apologize for my cable company and their failing service lately. Service went out this morning about 8:30 and didn't return until almost 4 this afternoon.
I guess you might have noticed we were offline today and the connection is still very spotty right now (will connect, but drops after a few seconds). There's a lineman supposed to come sometime tomorrow maybe, you know how that goes. I am sorry for the trouble and hope we'll be back up soon. Just keep trying. Don't forget about tuxmachines while we're down.
We've suffered two occurrences of downtime within the last 4 days due to loss of electrical service in the area.

Sorry 'bout 'dat. We had a cable outage in the area today resulting in our downtime.

I've been putting off blogging what's going on with tuxmachines lately because number 1: I don't really know what happened, and number 2: I don't really know what's gonna happen. But here's what I do know.

Whoops, I did it again. The approximate 1/2 hour downtime wallago was due to user error this time.
Well, I guess the days of dependable electrical service is passed. So soon after a 4 hour outage on Christmas Eve, we suffered another 1 1/2 hour outage this evening.
Well, just as I posted the "all is well" blog entry, we suffered a power outage here.

I am moving Tuxmachines.org to a new server today, so the site may suffer intermittent downtime and sluggishness.
If you haven't yet, would you please vote in our latest poll submitted by bigbearomaha concerning your preferred Linux install media? I was wanting to use the results in an article, but there aren't nearly enough votes to be valid right now. Vote away!
Today ain't been our day. We experienced two occurrences of downtime today for seemingly unrelated reasons.
