The Sysops Log!

"The daily (or whenever) mutterings of a frantic Sysop"

  • Saturday 21st June
    Spent most of the day sleeping after 36 hours at Ace.
  • Friday 20th June
    One of *those* days. One upgrade too many killed the main Linux router.
    After re-installing Linux etc had to wait 3 hours to find out the ISP access code.
    Once we got things working after that, tests to the ISP kept failing.
    Spent the rest of the afternoon pulling hardware/software to bits looking for a problem.
    At about 6:00pm we were able to prove that the problem was at the ISP.
    That was finally rectified about 9:00pm then we spent the next 2 hours getting back to where we should have been about lunch time.
