Sorry for the downtime between about 10pm Dec 18th and 1am Dec 19th. In the process of trying to fix some golang stuff so I could get a new application running, I meant to remove a golang subdirectory in /usr/share and accidentally hit return after typing rm -r /usr before I finished the rest of the path. I hit delete right away but it had already removed half of /usr/share by that time.
A number of users complained about the introduction of Dashboard a while back. It is an app now and could be disabled. Given that nobody had anything good to say about it and it was slow as molasses in liquid helium, I have disabled it.
https://nextcloud.eskimo.com/ is restored to service. The automatic updater just would not work. After about a dozen retries and it hanging in various spots during the upgrade, I manually upgraded which was successful. There are a number of older applications that are no longer supported and a number of new available that I’ve yet to install but those apps that were installed that remain compatible are operational.
At approximately 11:30PM Friday December 10th, Pacific Time, I will be rebooting the physical hosts which in turn will reboot all the virtual machines. This is necessary because some system library updates that have been recently applied require a system restart to utilize the new code which addresses some Linux security concerns. This should take about ten minutes for all hosts to complete.
