You might have noticed on occassion that my server has been unavailable.

This is because Telstra have done something nasty to the cable modems. After 6 hours of inactivity the modems shut off and can only reinitialise an internet connection after having their power pulled, and then takes 5-15 minutes to restore the internet connection.

They are claiming they have always been like this, but this problem has only arisen in last few weeks and has been happening almost daily now.

So much for always on, instant internet access. This kind of crap is worse than dialup!

I apologise for the disruption, and I’ve put a process in place that functions every hour that should keep it live, until they pull the next piece of crap.
