Power Failure Today, Downtime

I take the somewhat unusual approach, of hosting my site and this blog, from a personal computer at home. I’m not saying that everybody should do it this way; this is only how I do it.

As a result, the visibility of my site is only as good, as my ability to keep this PC running, as well as the quality of my Internet connection.

For more than a week, the Island Of Montreal has seen a powerful heatwave. As is customary, this culminated in a powerful thunderstorm this evening. And, the thunderstorm caused a power failure, from about 18h55 until 19h15. As a consequence, this site and blog were offline, until about 19h45.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failure today, Downtime

I take the somewhat unusual approach, of hosting my Web-site and this blog, on my private PC at home. I’m not suggesting that everybody should do it this way; this is only how I do it.

As a consequence, the visibility of this blog is only as good, as my ability to keep my PC running, as well as my Internet connection.

Today there were several power failures on the Island of Montreal, due to severe (dry) Summer Storms, starting around 6h35. As a result, this site and blog were offline until 14h15.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers,

Power Failure, Downtime

I take the unusual approach of hosting my site and this blog, on a PC at home, which acts as my Web server. I don’t recommend that everybody do it this way. This is only how I do it.

This has as side effect that the availability of this site is only as good, as the reliability of my PC, as well as that of my internet connection.

Today my neighbourhood experienced a power failure from 14h25 until 17h55, and, this site remained offline until about 18h55.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failure Today, Downtime

I take the somewhat unusual approach of Hosting my Web-site and blog, on a PC at home. I’m not saying that this is what everybody should do; this is just how I do it. Unfortunately this means that the visibility of this blog is only as good as the reliability of the PC in question, and of my Internet connection.

Today, the city I live in experienced violent wind-gusts, which I’d estimate had wind-speeds of over 100 km/H. This caused a power failure around 9h00 this morning. And, even though that power failure only seemed to last about 15 minutes, I did not reboot my computers immediately, because of the possibility of yet another power failure. The winds continued to gust this way until about 17h00 today.

As a result, this site and blog were down from about 9h00 until about 17h50.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.
