On July 25th rhubarb, the firewall machine in the basement, had a spectacular hard disk crash. It sounded like a cat fight and startled us out of bed! 😯
Rhubarb kept routing traffic, so I was lazy and didn’t get around to rebuilding on a new disk until today. Carrot, which hosts the Gallery and the Wiki, was inaccessible during rhubarb’s rebuild. Kiwi, which hosts everything else and lives in a data center in Texas, was unaffected.
The gap in the traffic graph below reflects the time during which rhubarb had no working hard disk and couldn’t record log files. If you had been attempting to hack in to my network, that would have been a good time to do so surreptitiously!
