This Saturday at around 2:30 PM EEST for unknown reasons the power of the server was terminated. The machine had restarted herself, but it was not accessible until around 6:30 PM EEST today. The reason for this however is other - the server did not succeeded to make Internet connection at the startup, and after that didn't try to again. Because of this from now on the Internet connection will be checked every 5 minutes and will be restored if terminated.

Hardware problem

The faulty card

Because of a problem with the video card the server was not accesible for 48 hours - from 7:00 PM on May, 29-th 2006 to 7:00 PM on May, 31-st 2006. The problem was caused by stalled fan. Replacement was neccessary and since the new card was not availiable the rerun of the server was delyed by one day.

The new card is with passive cooling and I hope there will be no such problem anymore. Probably in future a fan will be added, but it is not currently needed.
