System Problems Come In Threes Too

There’s an old saying that bad luck comes in threes. Today, I am doing unexpected work because:-

  1. one webserver was reinstalled instead of the upgrade I was expecting,
  2. another webserver was cracked and defaced (combination of two known security problems that we didn’t fix quickly enough, but that’s the server owner’s call really), and
  3. my internet connection keeps going offline for about 20 seconds at a time, which is just enough to stall ssh and VoIP, but not enough to debug.

Hopefully that’s it for today because there are other tasks I want to do. If I’m a bit slow to reply, now you know why! Sorry to anyone who was expecting me to do something else today – I will get back to you as soon as possible.
