Service Downtime

Last night this box had a little bit of downtime with certain services. Chris had upgraded the router, and for some reason one of the policies didn’t take correctly, and began to deny UDP traffic to the nameservers. This proceeded in killing SMTP connections and a few other things that required lookups. He had quite a fun experience in fixing it last night, guess he had to drive in after the router began totally blocking everything when he tried fixing it. Not a fun experience.

Idiot Drivers

What is with the folks that think they can drive up the right turn lane to a red light, then jump the green to get through the light first, and get in front of traffic? That has happened a few times to me recently. So it get’s worse, when those people aren’t faster, and they give you all sorts of nasty stares, rude gestures and more because you aren’t making way for them.
