Tonight we had several severe outages of the Internet between the World and the server that runs MatraSport  :-(

More precisely it was inside the telenor.net cloud, and also their peer'ing with the datacentre (uni-c.dk) where the server is located.

This unfortunately meant several HOURS of non connectivity, but it is now back, after they have replaced some equipment. The expectation (and my hope!) is that it will now stay reasonably stable.

The server has not had any problems at all - except for possibly feeling a bit lonely, being without Internet connection. I guess we all can relate to that sort of crisis 

We are going to change IP address of the server soon, and when that is done, we will be using a different peering, to a much better Internet peer with modern equipment (the route to the old one is under telenor.net decommissioning, hence the lack of proper hardware, I think)

Not sure when this IP switch will happen, - but people are now back from Le Mans, and the usual hump in server access has peaked, so anytime soon might be a good option - but it is probably a good idea to wait for DNS servers to update the TTL to something low. I am however looking into the possibility of running a proxy-server or http-redirect server on the old address, which might make it possible before.

Anyway, the plan is to make that IP witch transparent to the users.

OH YES - I hope it will recover quickly from the depressive state it must have been in Grin
