At Home Uptime Record

Ars Digita Uptime (previously uptime.arsdigita.com, now at archive, 1998) is now dead, but as of September 8, 2001, monitoring of my at-home site began again with uptime.OpenACS.org (now at archive, 2001). The at-home record is here (now at archive, 2003). We were switched to comcast, and since March 2, 2002, a default site (now at archive, 2004) on comcast has been monitored, and its record is here (now at archive, 2006).

This report (below) used to reside at Arsdigita (now available here at archive.org). On June 7, 2001 we received an email from Arsdigita announcing the demise of the Uptime free monitoring service. Unbelievably, they only gave 24-hours notice! I suppose we got what we paid for, but such short notice is not very neighborly. Maybe it has something to do with the legal troubles (previous version, archived) between the Venture Capitalists and the founder of the company, Philip Greenspun, who also founded the Uptime service?

About as suddenly as they announced the demise, they quietly restored the service for a while. Then some time later, they as quietly announced the death of the service at the web site (at archive, 2002). It took me a while to notice the change and sign up with OpenACS (now at archive, 2003).

Monitored since January 12, 2001.

Quote of the moment
Some people might ask, if everything is an illusion, what is the use of getting rid of illusory suffering with an antidote that is itself illusory? The answer is that illusory suffering is the result of causes and conditions that are also illusory. Even though pain is illusory, we still suffer from it, and we certainly do not want it.

The same is true of happiness. It is an illusion, but it is still something we want. Thus, illusory antidotes are used to get rid of illusory sufferings, just like a magician uses one magical illusion to counteract another.
