LOL Maybe I’m just cursed at this point.
This is an email to follow up on the update on our social network accounts (twitter and facebook: @hosthatch) that we are investigating an issue on SSDNode15. Instead of fixing this server, we have chose to restore from 1 hour old backups to some of our other stable servers running for 3+ months with no downtimes. SSDNode15 has unfortunately had very bad luck and has failed 3 times in the past month, which is why we are going to take it out of production, replace most of the parts, burn test it and then put it back into production.
Although I had time to check the log, it turns out I had over 250 users, but a good 150 of them couldn’t figure out the synchronet mandatory send a letter to sysop thing so they abandoned the process.
I don’t know why, but I still liked the idea of being the last OS/2 sysop on the planet, but this year has been ridiculous. Now that I have it running on VMWare, maybe it’s time I just buy a UPS, and run it on ESX from now on. But at the same time, I did like the idea of it running in a datacentre.
