Eskimo (the main shell server and the location of user directories) crashed with a memory dump at about 9:20pm tonight, and rebooted. This affected everything local: web pages and domains point to the user directories which were down for a few minutes; mail, shell access, news, and the like all use password authentication, as do the local Western-WA dialups. 56k/ISDN connectivity was affected in regard to the DNS servers but not actual connectivity. Everything's back up now. ~ Eric -- Eric T. Jorgensen Reality's a Rorschach test, Eskimo North Support Staff And all the world's a blot. 206-812-0051, 800-246-6874 "Semper Tux (Linux Forever)"
