Eskinews froze with a single kernel panic at about 7:30pm Pacific time, requiring a powercycle (the only thing that would respond) and the normal 30-60+ minute fsck disk scans. This went through without errors to the login prompt, but a few minutes later it froze again, this time with no error messages or warnings. Also, it required a manual scan of the spool, which is being done now. No eta at the moment (I'd say 45-60 minutes for the disk scan, but I told people that after 7:30 as well), but we'll get it back up as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience. -- Eric T.
