Problems with my DSL, Recent Down-Time

I take the unusual approach of Hosting my site and blog on my private PC at home. This is not a recommendation for other people to do the same thing, it’s just how I do it. But then a side effect of what I do is the fact, that the availability of this blog is only as good, as the (DSL) network connection of my PC at home.

In recent weeks, Quebec, the province I live in, has been pounded by extremely cold weather (below -20⁰C), as well as more than one snow-storm. And this has played havoc with many customers’ service, as ice and water can penetrate the cables.

For that reason the availability of my site and blog has also experienced many issues. I apologize to my readers if this has inconvenienced them.

For the moment it looks like my ISP has been able to stabilize my connection, by reducing the speed with which I connect, and I’m fine with that, since a stable but slower connection is preferable to no connection at all.

I’m looking forward to some better solution in the distant future, but am confident that in the short term, the connection has been made stable again.
