Bleearrrggh! Late to work because I wasn’t eager to be the first one to see that the servers hadn’t mysteriously fixed themselves. I ended up working on them all day, finally left at 9 pm after a ten-minute lunch break. Way too long to remain focused, or to have any real idea of what we were looking for. I have a very real suspicion that the old servers are now hopelessly outclassed by the sheer quantity of network clients in the University, and that any interruption or outage is enough to push the whole thing into a non-linear failure. Maybe the power outage on the weekend disconnected enough clients that when they came back, they all tried to reconnect at once and killed it all…
