Kernel Update Yesterday, Downtime

I use the uncommon methodology of hosting my site, and this blog, on a home computer. And this means that the reliability with which my Web-pages can be fetched, is only as good as the reliability of this home computer, which I name ‘Phoenix’. I don’t necessarily recommend that other people do this; this is just how I do it.

Yesterday (05/08/2018) , the Debian maintainers pushed through another kernel update. After a kernel update, even a Linux computer needs to be rebooted. And the result from that would have been, that my site and blog would not have been accessible to the Internet, from about 19h55 until 20h05.

The last kernel update only took place recently.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused my readers.

The kernel update itself seems to have been uneventful on any level that I was able to observe.

Dirk
