Kernel Upgrade Christmas Eve 11pm-Midnight

     Barring large amounts of snow on the roads, I will be doing a kernel upgrade this Christmas Eve starting at 11pm.  Not really the thing I want to be doing on Christmas Eve but the present kernel has shown some instability that lead to one machine locking up.

     This will impact all of Eskimo North’s paid and free services, including virtual private servers, shell servers, web hosting, e-mail, and our fediverse instances,,,, and

     With the exception of Yacy which always takes longer because it rebuilds the index at start-up, the rest of the services should be not down for more than about ten minutes unless a server fails to shut down properly.
