DOWNTIME COMING SOON: server location move 2018-08-27
« on: August 23, 2018, 11:01:03 pm »
The server that houses TM will soon move to a more secure location with better backup power and air conditioning.  The current plan is to do this on Monday, 8/27.  The server will need to be down for at least 30 minutes, possibly much longer if things don't go as smoothly as expected.  The reliability benefits of being in a genuine dedicated machine room will far outweigh the inconvenience of this hopefully brief interruption.

Question...have you been hosting this server at home or at the college?

It's at the college.  Even on a college-owned computer now, justified by the dependency of the METAL academic project on TM's DB.

A power outage on parts of the campus today might delay the move.  If things settle down, the IT staff might be able to assist with the move, but at the moment they have more urgent issues on their plates.  So far so good maintaining power in the building housing my office and the current server location.
