Server Hardware Problems (9 Oct 2014)
« on: October 09, 2014, 07:57:51 am »
The actual hardware our VPS runs on had some type of failure overnight and Linode moved us to new hardware. We were down about 30-60 minutes from the looks of it. Not everything restarts on its own, however, so I have to reset things like chat manually. If you notice something obviously not working, please let me know in this thread. (I know about chat!).

Unfortunately, Lyric has doctor's appointments today and I'm her transportation -- so some things may not get restarted until much later in the day.

First things first, take care of Lyric. Other things can wait.

She's okay -- they  just "get new doctors here in Garland" visits. But they are taking up moist of the day.

It looks like eveything is working now, but there is no way I can check everything.

No word on exactly what the hardware issue was, but this is only the second one in six years, so it is hard to complain.
