2003/01/20 10:29:00 - Browning out, across the world...
..."are you ready for a brand new boot?"
Last night I installed cleopatra to replace allison - just need to migrate the news server and web server across now (mail is working), and Matthew cooked a goulash in the slow cooker which worked out really well.
We had col over to play cards after eating, and played Doppelkopf again :-), and all was good.
So, I wakes up in the morning (likes I usually does), and wander into the computer room to find cleopatra rebooted and xantha stuck in her BIOS hardware detection step. One quick reboot of xantha later and I decide that there's been a brief power interruption. Ming seems to be OK, so maybe Matthew set it going again when he got up. I fettle cleopatra a bit and then we have a brownout just as I'm about to leave for work (at 8:30am, near enough). This time xantha and cleopatra come up fine, but ming refuses to reboot. Doom. Ming is out gateway/firewall machine (as well as being the house almost-everyhting-server). After 10 minutes frantic fettling of bits of cabling I discover that moving the plug from one end of the power-bar to the other fixes it. Maybe a fuse has gone in the bar?
By the time ming's finished rebooting, and I'm happy, I've missed the next bus, and so don't get into work until about 10am. sigh

Yes, at Relativity, there was one power glitch at about 7:30am, and another at about 8:30am.

I lost stuff I was writing in LJ on both occasions. Damn Mozilla edit boxes for not being emacs :-)

We noticed them both, wondering why the phone went blip.

We didn't actually get out of bed til after the second one though. When rjk did my machine was still fscking itself, but it had finished by the time I dragged myself up. Yippee, an advantage to being lazy.
