No cycling today as I'm looking after the kids and after rugby training was abandoned due to the hail for once I was happy not to be out in the middle of no where.
Apologies to the subscribers to planet cycling which was currently suffering from the double failure of my internet connection being “upgraded” which for some reason results in “up to 10 days where the service is unstable” and during this time my ISP is even less interested in investigating faults than usual. Since the router seem incapable of reconnecting when I loose service I have to restart it. Thanks to smnp, expect and ssh I now have a script that should do exactly that so the extended failures should be a thing of the past. However since running the script the service has stayed up so I can't be 100% sure it works.
The second failure was user error. I failed to notice that the latest operating system upgrade moving to build 53 of Nevada had overwritten one of the web server configuration files. I've fixed that and reverted the web server back into it's own zone. Build 53 would appear to be one of those releases that you should run to install if you use the desktop lots of nice new features not least firefox 2.0.
