After running for 361 days without a break in service, I briefly took "deya" (the name of the server hosting this site) offline today in order to install a new kernel.
For those more tech-minded around here, you may be interested to know that deya is now running a spiffy new kernel:
Linux deya 2.4.20 #1 Sun Mar 16 22:20:47 GMT 2003 i686 GNU/Linux
Rebooting the server was a heart-breaking thing to do given that the reboot was performed was just 4 days shy of a year's uptime. According to netcraft.com, a service which monitors uptimes, operating systems and etc of www servers, deya had had the longest uptime of any publically accessible web server on the Oxford University netblock.
I hope no one was inconvenienced by the reboot.
