Tue Jun 15 16:01:14 PDT 1999 — We’re doing a lot of work in our dial group today, and a number of small problems have been resolved. Some customer connections are being reset during this work. We’ll try to schedule the more painful stuff for late at night. -Dane, Eli, etc.
Mon Jun 14 19:35:57 PDT 1999 — We’ve observed two spontaneous reboots of nas22.sonic.net today, at around 6pm and at 7:30pm. This resulted in the termination of about 130 dialup connections each time. We’ll be working on replacement of the core components of that unit in the morning.
Trouble with nas22 may explain the disconnection problems that some customers are experiencing. If you get disconnected, please make note of the IP address you were allocated so that we can see which access server you were on. You can obtain your IP address in Windows using the winipcfg command. -Dane
Mon Jun 14 18:11:45 PDT 1999 — It appears that one of our Computone Intelliservers lost it’s tiny little mind and needed a reboot this afternoon. The error being returned to end users was error 629, data link terminated by remote peer. We’re working currently on a lobotomy for the Computone equipment which will bypass the rather quirky on-board OS. -Eli & Dane

Thu Jun 3 01:53:42 PDT 1999 — At 3:30am, we’ll be restarting Thunder for a filesystems check. We’ll also be restarting all high-density terminal servers, as this is the time of day they are most unused. -Scott
