Well it actually happened. The flaky server actually died yesterday. Tech support had the motherboard replaced in short order but for some reason the OS kernel was not happy with the change and would not boot. I dicked about with it for an hour or so and still could not make it happy. So, it was put in the to hard basket and i got up early today, reinstalled the OS and restored a backup of my data and we are back online. I am missing a couple of posts because I was lazy and did not download the last backup, but hey, its a personal blog. A few posts missing is not really going to mean much. Anyway, i should now be back in the land of server stability and should not have any more issues.
