Site downtime

<!--StartFragment -->As most of you probably noticed Ford-Trucks.com has been down since about 1:00 pm (Eastern Time).

The front end server's power supply bought the farm and the system would no longer power on. After arriving at the data center at 2:00 pm and diagnosing the problem I went searching for a power supply that would work with it. Not an easy task to find one with motherboard connectors long enough to reach diagonally front to back across a long rack server. I finally managed to find one and got back to the data center around 7:00 pm. After getting everything connected and tested followed by an integrity check on the RAID drive array we're back up now. I believe this is the longest down-time we've had in 3+ years.

The system may go down again for a few hours later this weekend. I need to tidy up the cabling.... I left in a hurry as it was getting late.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Have a great weekend.

Mil1ion is starting off with a positive reputation.
It wasn't a problem for me.
I went to Calgary again today.
Just got back and FTE is up

I know you are only minutes away from being "On The Job" with the fixing crew.

Reminds me of the days we fielded call after call at the local isp waiting for cisco to deliver a blade for a server... She came around 1am.....

I was wondering what was going on... I spend all my free time at home here (Loser=Yes.) and learn a ton of new stuff everyday...
Thanks for the update Ken. I was actually kind of stressing out about it.

I admit it, I'm hooked!

DOH!

I was hoping for the upgrade. Oh well...soon enough.

Thanks for the "fix" Ken. That's why you're the WebMASTER.

I was logged in when the system went down... I took it as a sign that maybe I should be doing something that looked a bit more like work, though, and all's well.

Thanks, Ken, for all you do to keep the site up and running. Much appreciated.
