Kernel Update, Downtime

I take the unusual approach, of hosting my blog on my own Web-server at home. Tonight, this host machine, named ‘Phoenix’, received a standard Debian Kernel Update via the package manager.

This procedure is routine, but requires a reboot, even from a Linux computer.

The visibility of my site and of my blog, was affected from approximately 21h40 until 21h55. Also, because the server itself was rebooting, it was not possible to have it display a Maintenance Mode image.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Further, the Server response may be a bit sluggish for the next few hours or day, simply because its cache gets cleared, when we reboot.

The last session, that I just rebooted, had been running for 31 days continuously.
