What Can Brown Do For You?


It's kind of hard not to sit back and laugh when the following happens:

One of my servers has been up and down all week.  More down than up.  I have been getting flurries of emails and phone calls from people about this and there isn't much I can do, because I don't maintain the server.  I thus contacted the maintainer of the server, only to be mostly ignored.  I finally got a call this morning and we walked through a couple troubleshooting steps before 'they' suggested rebooting the server.  Sure I said.  I got an email 20 minutes later:

Sever is broke.  When I rebooted it, it came up with a blank screen.  Someone else will need to look at it.

Lovely.  Days like this make me want to go insane.

Update: Turns out the hard drive was full. *head*+desk = better
