Spoke to Ryan about the recent server downtime on Silverfir. He hasn’t confirmed it yet, but believes the downtime was due to a remodel of the kitchen in his home that is occuring while he is away. He thinks that the contractors had to shutdown the circuit that his cable modem/router is on in order to install a stove or something, and that is the reason for the downtime. Silverfir is set to reboot on power restore, so it should come back up automatically if further electrical work is necessary. If, on the other hand, the problem is kernel panicks, Theo has root and can investigate and build a new kernel. A preliminary examination on his part did reveal a lot of stuff in the kernel marked experimental that seemed unnecessary, so who knows at this point.
