I presume you ran out of ##\nabla##'s after the recent heavy usage.
yeah from processing your sig :D
BIOS got corrupt. Needed an update. Took a while to figure that out.
FINALLY !!! needed my dose of PF!!! :D
good job guys!
Closer to 6 hours.
I felt cut off from reality for awhile.
Oh, wait. I might need to double check my version/definition of reality.
When I saw it down I went into nihilist overload.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those that understand binary and those that don't.
There are two kinds of people in the world: females and males.
And why did it have to happen on the day I wrote my magnum opus.......
Someone left the BIOS out, in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
It took so long to google it
and I'll never have that thought pattern, again.... oh No!
MacArthur Park. Worst song ever.
I'm just glad I wasn't home so I didn't have to experience the outage.
...and people who don't understand this is a base three joke.
All Hail Greg!!
:thumbs: Thank you Greg for working like crazy for over 6 hours straight to get PF back up and running!!
Your definition is fine; it's exactly how I felt!
How did it get corrupt? I mean seriously, how does a BIOS get corrupt? Isn't it protected by the operating system?
Really don't know. We were updating the kernel, rebooted and things went all wonky.
for a while, i had thought i was I.P. banned. :)
I had similar thoughts. I'm an old guy and hadn't done anything worthy of banning, but still....
So what are you runnin' Greg? Mind? Ok if so. I was just curious like hardware, database, operating system, speed don't forget speed. Also I have to admit some ignorance about the BIOS. Not sure where it is. I should know, maybe inside kernel memory somewhere in the first 100 Mb of RAM and loaded at bootup and I would assume selfishly and meticulously guarded and protected by the operating system so then to get corrupted, what? I suppose some app must have gained kernel privilege to write to a protected area of the disc drive containing the BIOS and permanently corrupting it.
If that was a test question in a class on Operating Systems, I think that's the best I could do and just hope for the best.
CentOS, MySQL, Apache/Nginx, Intel E5-2620
Very concise. Not hard for me to see just where you're at, with some digging that is. :)
