Hmm just noticed this as well… 15 minute uptime? Server crash?

A nice month’s run is probably about to end. :frowning:


They hired more support help.
Tip me (and DreamHost gets 5%+$0.30) Cut the code: [color=#00CC00]9999=$99.99 Off[/color]

It has ended…

[tab]$ w
13:00:13 up 5 min,
[tab]$

Yeah, Perrier is still crawling slower than a turtle even over ssh… I never like to see a load with the interger portion larger than the number of CPUs :frowning: means something bad going on :frowning:
