Goodbye metis... (30 Jan 2003)

As of this weekend, will cease to be. Physically it will remain, but behind a NAT, ticking away in quiet invisibility.

Specificed and built by myself it has been running pretty much flawlessly since inception. Downtime was generally not its fault:

  • Powercuts (many of these)
  • Upstream network failures
  • Upstream's promises of a static IP address failing (many of these)
  • PSU fan failure cause it to overhead an die every few hours (I guess you could call that its fault)
  • Rats pissing in the PSU and shorting it out (I kid you not)

Goodbye, good server.

(this may well mean that imperialviolet as a website will be down over the weekend. Email will continue to work)
