etherwork.net - ONCE AGAIN

 
24 May 9:10 AM: Alas, once again etherwork.net is unexpectedly offline. Why am I surprised? It's a long weekend in Canada. Of COURSE, it's offline! I do not know when it will return but it will probably be sooner rather than later.

As always, the way to know whether etherwork is back online is to refresh this page. If you see a leafy image at the top of the page, then you can access the real blog.

edit 24 May 10:21 AM: I'm happy to report that etherwork.net is once again back online. There is no mention of this outage on the official updates page so I guess it can be pinned down to the usual "It's Monday of a long weekend".

edit: 21 April 11:59 AM: I'm very happy to report that etherwork.net is back online.

Here is an exerpt from the updates page:



April 21, 10:03 AM - Back Up

The system is back up.

This is the kind of issue we dislike - spontaneous reboot, no error messages that point to an obvious reason however we are seeing a large number of unusual "probes" - which is usually the sign of hackers/exploiters looking for web sites/servers to infect.

We will be hardening the network against these, just in case!

But for now, we are back and running at full steam!

April 21, 8:45 AM - Spontaneous System Reboot

The server decided to spontaneously reboot with no reason or warning. Doing a file system data check and bringing it back online asap.

Will post when it's live!

Sigh. The etherwork.net server (where my real blog is) is currently offline. I do not know when it went off-line, nor do I know when it will return.

As always, the way to know whether etherwork is back online is to refresh this page. If you see a leafy image at the top of the page, then you can access the real blog.

edit 15 April 2010 11:03 PM: I'm happy to report that etherwork.net is back online and has been for some time.
