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.

I take the unusual approach, of Hosting this site and this blog, on a PC at home. I don’t say that other people should do this. This is only what I do.

This implies that the visibility of this blog is only as reliable, as the operation of my PC here at home.

Today we had a power failure, from approximately 16h15 until 17h35. As a result, this blog was also offline, until about 18h00.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failure Today, Downtime

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.
