Subject: Unexpected Interruption
The past ten days have been a challenge.
Ron Severdia was doing maintenance on the PlayShakespeare/SHAKSPER server when the database tables crashed. They needed to be reinstalled and SHAKSPER’s is very large with 24 years of discussions. Then there was other maintenance before the server was ready. When it was, I had an external hard drive failure that was funking up my computer so that it was freezing every time I started it. It took me two days to track down the problem. There are other things that I need to work out after another external hard drive swap, but I am stopping now to get the backlog of digests out.
Apologies for the interruption.
