Here's how it goes:
- - Hourly (or so) Time Machine backups.
- - Daily + weekly backup to RAID protected NAS.
- - Daily + weekly backup rsync to Cloud
- - Quarterly rsync to offline and offsite USB.
Here's how it goes:

Assuming such correlation is useful for credit analysis, how does someone other than the telcos access that kind of information to produce such evaluations?! I'd say it is private information. Correct me if I'm wrong...
My short (happy) start,
Back in 1993 or thereabouts I had one computer graphics course where we had to do a 3D project in PHIGS / SPHIGS (remember that?). The lab had about 20 NEC colour X Terminals - beautiful beasts, by the time - which, of course, were shared by many students; in short, the lab was always packed with people and it was not the most confortable environment to give the first steps in UNIX graphics programming - noisy and very often with no available seats.
A friend got hold of Linux in what were maybe 15-20 3.5" floppies -- that would be slackware, IIRC -- which we managed to install on a non-branded PC. I recall having trouble in getting X to work and fiddling with the modelines to acheive something like 800x600 with probably 8 bits per pixel!
In the end it was a great learning experience. We did most of the work at home and, from time to time, tested it at the lab.
Later (or maybe that was the initial trigger?) we had a different course where we had to program directly on top of the X API and also on top of Motif - we also used our home PCs (now that I mention it, I'm not really sure if we had Motif on Linux by then).
Well, there you go: that's my "how I started".
Since then it has been a very rich experience both using Linux and commercial UNIX solutions at a professional and personal level. The distance between what Linux was by then and what it is today is huge in every aspect, but it was already very useful and valuable by then.
Let's see what the future holds for it.
Could this be a coincidence or was there some 2008/2009 rollover issue going on here?
set the system time back a few mins before the crash occured and see if your server crashes again... otherwise it's idle speculation
It might be difficult to reproduce if the system clock is NTP synched. Especially considering we had a leap second this year, where the clocks rolled from 23:59:59 to 23:59:60 to 00:00:00 GMT.
As someone else said: check your logs + try to reproduce.
Happy new Year
By creating a forum for feedback and now having that forum filled with customer "wishes", Dell is now in the uncomfortable position of having to respond. Silence won't work and neither will the marketing-speak filled "thanks but no thanks" response to every idea that Dell doesn't like or involves a cash outlay. IdeaStorm is now nothing more than a focal point for everything that is wrong with Dell, and the lack of any obvious moderation over at IdeaStorm is making the problem a lot worse.
If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
