Update: Wondering About Linux Today?

| | Comments (0)

Believe me, so am I. Went to dinner with the family, came back, and boom! The site seems dead.

Luckily, the Blog is on another server and has a separate content management system. Here's what I know thus far: bupkis. Based on the error messages I see, it looks like the MySQL database bit the dust. LT was flaky earlier today, when the actual server crashed a couple of times, taking LinuxPR and JustLinux down with it.

Now it looks like the database is the culprit. I have contacted the sysadmins, but it's late on the East Coast, and they may not get the message until tomorrow.

Sorry for the inconvenience. It's been over a year since the server had downtime, so I suppose we can count that as something.

More: Well, it seems things were working fine again by 2345 EDT (0345 GMT) last night, but I could not tell anyone that because my Internet connection at the home office went down at the same time. If I were paranoid...

Anyhow, it seems that things are back to whatever passes for normal around here. Thank you for your patience!

Peace,

Brian
