drive installation report

Our new drive is installed, but the server's running into an error while booting. Hopefully our friends at Tera-Byte will be able to work it out soon.

Update: Problem identified. We're now waiting for the always-slow disk checks to finish and we should be back in business within the next hour.

Update 2: We're back online. If anything's not working, please let us (root@) know. Sorry for the extended downtime, but it was good to shake out some bugs before the long-anticipated OS update.

system upgrade

I'll be working on a long overdue system software upgrade later today and possibly tomorrow.

There shouldn't be any significant downtime. Mail may be slightly delayed. The web server may be down briefly.

Update 20:26 EST: real life got in the way and I have not managed to upgrade anything yet. Stay tuned.

[construction sign]

I'm working on some network settings right now. There will be another reboot in the next hour.

Update:after a couple of tries, we have a new kernel with proper DMA, SCSI, and IP filtering support.


Yesterday afternoon Apache freaked out and overloaded okcomputer. It didn't go down, but it was inaccessible for about half an hour.

We rebooted okcomputer a few times last night as Tim and I tried to sort out some issues with the new hard drives.

I will probably reboot it once more this evening (probably around 1900 MST) to install a new kernel that will speed up the disk access.

After that, okcomputer needs a newer, bigger, backup drive. It also needs to be moved within Tera-Byte's building at some point. We can probably combine those two into one reboot.

I'll post on this blog about future reboots so you guys will know what's going on.

Update: in the future, Apache will automatically be restarted if the load gets too high.

IMAP's working now so you should be able to download your mail. If your mail program is configured to check the mail/ directory, remove that. Just check the default directory now.

Webmail is partly working - inbox only for now.
