I apologize for the recent downtime - there was an issue at the central office that was finally resolved this morning. No hardware/software failures on my end though :)

You don't know what you have 'til it's... suffering from a network breakdown. Glad everything is back up :D

It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi

Glad to hear everything's alright! For a moment there I was starting to suspect a disk crash, database wipeout, system failure, or all of the above...

Yep, everything was up and running the whole time, but the network was isolated. Once they fixed the problem at the CO everything came back up on its own. They still haven't told me what they did to fix it though (edit: was informed they replaced the DSLAM card).

And as luck would have it, the entire ISP goes down a few hours later :)

Yeah, much more of this and I'm switching providers. I'm probably going to get billed for the on-site tech as it is.

How about creating slave (synchronized) DNS server somewhere outside (so that DNS is alive in such a situation), and deploying a backup IRC or some other means of communication so that jan-jaap doesn't get into withdrawal ?
Wich such a config, neko would still have control over the DNS, and slave would keep working even if the master is dead...
