6/25/2020 - Downtime: This Time It's Personal
Tomorrow I am going to begin a big physical move of the equipment that is SwaggNet... Expect long downtime(s) during the weekend of 6/26/2020 to 6/28/2020. Should've posted this note a bit sooner but I've been busy ok lay off!!
6/10/2020 - Downtime: Whoops! Edition
Crashed the server playing with my new backup script for the Minecraft server... Ended up accidentally corrupting some files so I had to restore the Minecraft server from last backup (yesterday). But the backups did work at least?
6/8/2020 - Downtime (more to come)
Had a bit of downtime around 15:45 EDT, not sure what happened but there was a sudden break in connectivity. Wasn't able to ping my ISP so I rebooted the modem and it's fixed. I'll call that a "soft error" (aka it's a mystery). Also there may be a full day or so worth of downtime coming approx. June 25th for some equipment I must physically move. Will follow-up with more exact info as the date approaches.
5/16/2020 - Minecraft Server world reset
Minecraft Server world reset after adding admins (it's a test server!)
3/31/2020 - Server crash
Crashed the server around 16:00 EDT while working on the new Minecraft server, few minutes of downtime there but Minecraft server is up for testing
3/7/2020 - Downtime again...
Power outage again around 20:30 EST took me down for over an hour
1/17/2020 - New hostname
swagg.cc is now swagg.net, full story here
12/31/2019 - Brief downtime
A power outage around 1400 local time caused about a half hour of downtime. I was able to gracefully shut everything down on backup power but ICMPv6 is acting flakey since coming back up so I may have to take her down briefly again tonight to figure out what's going on. All in all everything seems to be more or less working again
EDIT: Just kidding, ICMPv6 was a firewall glitch whoopsie. All good now
12/11/2019 - CS 1.6 Server Restart Issue
It was brought to my attention that the CS 1.6 server was shutting itself down every 10 minutes for a restart. Shouts out to Bob for reporting this. It appears a Python script I was using to automate some things stopped working when it was updated as a Python 3 script. Got python3 installed and it appears to be working now. Meanwhile, Perl scripts written in the mid-2000s continue to work just fine :)
