Server Silliness

Site Jun 13, 2006

Sloppiness really irritates me. Case in point – I install some updates for the server, and schedule a midnight (my local time) reboot so that some of the updates can take effect. It turns out that one of the updates decided to disable the mysql daemon from starting up. Nice going Mr. Package Maintainer, thank you.

Unfortunately, not only do my web sites rely on it, but my mail system does too.

It could have been worse though.
