Jake has a question for ipchains experts: "What command would I run on the Linux command line to determine whether ports 137-139 are accessible from a specific IP address, on a different subnet than the Linux server?"
Outage update, 11AM: I was able to string some baling wire, with the help of lots of scotch tape, and now have a very temporary workaround to the outage. Details.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the future of the Web.

Tim Jarrett: "I think that the New York Times through their partnership with UserLand has shown a much more enlightened mode of operating—if you want to build a reputation, make your content more visible, not less. But then, that’s why they are the Times and the others are the Dallas Morning News."

Personal note. On this day, 47 years ago, I was born.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, and thanks for all the fishes.
Morning outage stuff
Outage update, 7AM. The static server is still not connected to the community server. Looks like we're going to have to go down to Exodus and rewire things so that the static machine is on the same subnet as the community machine. Jake didn't finish work until 4AM, so it's going to be a while before we get started on that. Between a rock and a hard place.
OK, with that said, there is something I can do to turn some of the lights back on. I just added a bit of code to weblogs.com to mirror the changes on a page on scripting.com. This is a temporary thing, don't bookmark it, we will stop updating it as soon as the outage clears. But in the meantime, if you're a weblogs.com junkie, as I am, you can get your fix from a different server.
