Oops, minor server outage

Post by Mort » Sat Jan 20, 2007 7:42 pm

The server went down around midday today, and after a restart didn't come back up again properly. As I had to go visit my Grandmother in hospital I wasn't able to get it going agin till 8:30pm...

I hope you didn't miss us too much.

Although it doesn't seem any hotter in the "server room" than normal, I'm wondering if that may have caused some of the issue. In the meantime, the server may appear to be running a bit slower for some things as I have stopped overclocking it to help keep it's heat under control. It's been running a 150% overclock for the last 6 years since the day I took it out of the box, so maybe it's finally starting to fail.

So there you go boys and girls. Overclocking *is* bad for your computer :D

If i can find a spare fan I'll chuck it in the case to get some more air moving through it and hopefully that will keep it alive until I can get a new server up and running.
