Water Water Everywhere, My Kingdom for a Horse

After having been up continuously for a year, the machine hosting this blog crashed last week. I'm not sure why it crashed, but it simply needed a reboot and it was fine.

However, the simple reboot wasn't so simple. It turns out that the BIOS option to “turn machine on when power restored after a power failure” didn't work, and so the machine sat powered off for a week until someone could actually visit the colo to power it back on. Of course, I didn't know that that's all that was needed, so for the last week I fretted about how to fix whatever was broken. Sigh.

I'm happy that all it needed was a button press, but I wish it would have been easier. Thanks Jeremy, for visiting the colo and dealing with it.



One comment so far...

Just as an FYI, if there is something that you’d like to be done this side of the planet, feel free to let me know.
