I take the somewhat unusual approach, of hosting both my site and this blog, on a PC at home. I’m not saying that everybody should do this; this is only how I do it.
What this implies is that the accessibility of my site is only as good, as the WAN connection of my personal Internet service, as well as the quality with which my PC can be kept running.
Today, my home experienced a brief power failure, from approximately 9h00 until approximately 9h10. Therefore, my server went down. Yet, because I did not get back home until noon to reset things, the site remained off-line until about 12h15. I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.
As it happens, there have been relatively few power failures to my home, this Summer. On a typical Summer, there would have been more of them.
