YOW Status Log

All times in 24 hour clock EST/EDT.


August 5 Upgraded the OS on YOW yesterday and today (multiple incremental updates).

May 4 Power went off just before 22:00. I powered off YOW at 22:00 to quiet the UPS. I turned YOW back on just before 10:00. So YOW was off for almost exactly 12 hours.

April 16 Power went off at roughly 10:00 due to an ice storm. At 10:34 I powered off YOW because the UPS beeping was irritating. Power came back about 16:47. YOW was back online at 16:53.

February 14 Got the new battery. YOW was down between about 18:25 and 18:35 whilst I replaced the battery.

February 11 The router rebooted three times today... it turns out the UPS battery is dead again. Ordered a replacement.

January 16 The router rebooted unexpectedly at 6:18 and the pppd exited rather than starting up. There was no internet until I rebooted at about 18:31. It looks like the pppd is not happy if eth0 is not up when it starts.


Year End The big news this year was the new router. I have also moved the seanm.ca domain back to YOW. Not sure if it will stay there.

December 2 At about 14:45 I moved seanm.ca domain back onto YOW. DNS may be unstable for a day or so.

November 4 YOW now "stable" with all major functionality working (including wireless AP).

October 30 At roughly 16:30 I noticed that the disk had crapped out again on the NEXCOM (it was a used disk). Luckily the new PC Engines computer had arrived today. I got the 'Winder working for some internet access and got to work building the new router. At 1:00 I finally got the new router working and live. Still some work to do, but it works.

Older, NEXCOM based status.
