I take the unusual approach of hosting my site and my blog, on a private PC at home, instead of on a professional hosting service. This means that the availability of the site is only as good as my DSL connection at home.
Since about 11h00 yesterday, January 30, I’ve been experiencing problems with my DSL. This means that my site has been sporadically unavailable in the meantime. Further, when the technician from my ISP comes to repair the problem, today in the afternoon (January 31), his work will require that he disconnect my DSL, which means more downtime.
I apologize to my readers, and hope that this problem will soon be fixed.
(Update 1/31/2019, 20h00 : )
The technician was able to resolve this problem, but the service interruption which was required, for him to complete his job, lasted from 17h40 until 20h00 this evening.
I thank the tech-support of Bell Canada, as well as the hard work of the technician.
My site and blog should now be reliable again.
