Our telephones are back up. Squirrels had chewed through the drop.
Phones will be down from now until some time later this afternoon while Comcast is working to resolve intermittent service issues.
If you have an issue that needs attention, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The shell servers:
scientific.eskimo.com debian.eskimo.com pclinux.eskimo.com
are restored to service.
The physical host which hosts these machines is down. We are working to restore it to service as soon as possible. A technician has been dispatched to reboot.
Maintenance activity for this morning is completed with the exception of some compression and dump jobs which are eating a lot of CPU cycles and so may slow some things slightly until they complete.
I’ve replaced the HiStats counter on our home page with some PHP code that tracks visits in a local database.
The new counter is implemented in PHP, all the work is done on the server side and so it is completely transparent to the end user and just looks like ordinary HTML code.
It should provide more reliable statistics.
Our telephones are back up.
Our business telephones are down at present. We get our telephone service from Comcast and Comcast is broken at the moment and can’t schedule anyone until tomorrow afternoon.
If you can’t get through on our phones, please e-mail email@example.com instead. Fortunately, I have a T1 to our co-location facility so I do have another way of getting to e-mail and our hosts.
