Good news and bad: Internet connection downtime.

Those who frequent FLORA will notice the server running a little slower than usual. This is because the second SDSL Internet connection is currently down (please read status reports), and everything is running on one connection.

It has taken a bit more time than usual to get things back up and running because of what is actually good news which is that the Ottawa Linux Symposium (OLS) starts tomorrow.

It just so happens that OLS is hosted by Achilles, and is also the provider for that line. Part of the reason I chose Achilles for this connection is because of their very strong support for Linux.

In general, whenever there are problems with FLORA.ca or FLORA.org, please check the Server Status to see if I have already posted a message about the problem.
