Power Failure Today, Downtime

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.

Kernel Update Today, Downtime

I take the unusual approach of hosting my site and blog, on my PC at home. This means that if my computer, which I name ‘Phoenix’, has any down-time, so does my blog.

This afternoon, ‘Phoenix’ received a routine kernel update, that seemed to go well. But because even a Linux computer needs a reboot after a kernel update, this site was down briefly, from 12h55 until about 13h15.

On the same note I should mention that yesterday, March 27, we had a power-failure from about 16h00 until 17h45. For that reason as well, my site and blog could not have been on-line.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.

Power Failure, Downtime.

I take the unusual approach of hosting my Web-site and my blog, on my PC at home. I’m not suggesting that everybody do it this way. This is just how I do it. But the unfortunate consequence of that is, that my site and blog are only visible to the Internet, as long as my PC is up and running, and as long as my own Internet connection is stable.

This morning (March 15, 2019), while I was away, there was a power failure which literally lasted from 11h05 until 11h10 – according to my own log files. This means that the power in my home was out for maximally 5 minutes.

But, I only came back from my daily activities around 17h00. Therefore, with nobody at home to reboot my computer, the blog was offline for the duration, until 17h15.

I apologize for any inconvenience to my readers.
