Back online

The Color Classic web server is back online after a quick round of Disk First Aid. Booting off a System 7.1 Disk Tools floppy and hearing the disk drive grind was a familiar sound I only hear a couple of times a year when I do maintenance like this. What a trip back in time!

Made it through the hurricane

The Color Classic web server remained online throughout Hurricane Ike and it's aftermath, mostly because the hurricane never really affected Austin, turning east after making landfall.

But some recent fall thunderstorms caused power outages in the neighborhood which took the server offline briefly, and it is currently undergoing a hard drive directory rebuild which was required after so many sudden unexpected shutdowns. We should be back online very shortly.
