Brief Power Failure Today, Downtime

I take the somewhat unusual approach of Hosting my site and this blog, on a PC running at home. I’m not saying that everybody should do it this way; this is only how I do it.

For that reason, the availability of the site and blog are only as good, as how well my PC works, how good my Internet connection is, and how steady my standard, home utility power is.

Today there was a very brief power failure from 14h05 until 14h10. For that reason, my site and blog were offline until about 14h30.

It has been approximately 44 days, since the last power failure.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failure Today, Downtime

I take the somewhat unusual approach, of hosting my site and this blog on a private PC at home. I don’t recommend that people generally do it this way; it’s only how I do it. This means that, among other things, the availability of this blog is only as good, as the stability of my regular, domestic AC power.

Today, there was a power failure where I live, from about 9h40 until 11h20. For that reason, this site and blog were offline until 11h45.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failures Today, Downtime

I take the unusual approach, of hosting my Web-site, including this blog, on a private PC I have at home, acting as server. I’m not suggesting that everybody do it this way; it’s only how I do it. For that reason, the visibility of my site and blog, are only as good, as the quality of my Internet connection, as well as the continuity of my power supply.

Unfortunately, my immediate neighbourhood was subject to multiple power failures this evening, from 16h25 until 1815. For that reason, my Web-server was offline, until about 18h50. I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

BTW, This last server-session ran uninterrupted for over 60 days, as a sign of how rare such failures have been, in recent months.

Power Failure Today, Downtime

I take the unusual approach of hosting this blog and site, on a server, that is running on my personal computer at home. I don’t recommend that everybody do it this way; this is only how I do it. That makes the availability of my blog and site no better, than the reliability with which I can keep my PC running, as well as that, of my Internet connection.

Unfortunately, I experienced a brief power failure this morning, between 8h45 and 9h00. As a result, this site was down until about 9h40. I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

BTW, There have been remarkably few failures in the recent 3 months or so.
