    Default few minutes downtime to be expected today

    Due to the existence of scriptkiddies and less then perfect programmers there is a continueous need for updates on servers, several updates can take place without restarting the server, so you never notice, but once in a while (usually 2 times a year) a "kernel" upgrade is needed, which does require a fresh restart of the server, this is happening today.

    We hope that hte downtime will be no longer then the time it takes to reboot the machine, but........ we remain human and the server remains a computer.

    BEWARE: Murphy lurks!

    Sorry for the inconvenience if any.
    So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.

    If you've done 6 impossible things today?
    Then why not have Breakfast at Milliways!

    I knew it.... i KNEW it.

    but we solved the problem, up and running again (this machine that is, 9 more to go tonight) and we should be fine (Deo Volente) for another 150+ days.
