I have had to take the server down today. The remnants of Ike are passing through our area today and the power has been going in and out. I should be able to bring it back up in a couple hours, assuming we don't lose power completely.

It's back now. Geo thinks this last crash may be related to the problems the electric company is having with restoring the power grid after the storm went through.

I've had to take the server down tonight. Having a bit of a temperature issue. I don't think it's a serious problem, it looks like we've just got a fan that has failed. Unfortunately though it may be a couple days before I can get to the store and get a new one.

Bear with me. Sorry for the inconvenience.

"ISP issues" huh? (http://pbw.georgeperley.com)

What happened? Run over your bandwidth limit due to too many SE5 games? Or do they think you are distributing pirated copies of Space Empires games or something? :P

No, it wasn't anything TOS related. It just wouldn't stay up. I could get a couple minutes by resetting the modem, but that was about it. Tech support was telling me my line was good and it must be the modem. Turned out, for once, they were right.

Just posted this on the PBW news:

"If you haven't noticed, we had some down time over the weekend related to what we though was an ISP problem. Turned out the issue was our DSL modem was flaking out. Good news is we were able to get one locally and we are back up and running smoothly. Bad news is it took a little bit of cash, about $70 dollars. If anyone feels motivated to send a couple bucks to help offset that, donations as always are welcome.

Thanks again for your support."

No, it just crashed while Geo was at work. It's back up as I type this.

Anyone know what's up with PBW this morning? I'm getting turn notification emails (last one came less than an hour ago), but the site comes up completely blank in my browser...
