Thank You Microsoft

The Abnormal Interest server was abnormally down between 2:30 this morning and a few minutes ago. Microsoft was kind enough to provide a security update but couldn’t quite get the server to restart properly. How did I fix the problem? I manually rebooted the server. If I were a real webmaster, I’d have an alert system awaken me when something like this happens but I am not a real webmaster and I need my beauty sleep. I’d problem also have a backup server that would automatically kick in. But as I said, I’m not a real webmaster.
The good news – I didn’t get a single piece of spam email or a single spam comment during the time the server was down. But then, I didn’t get any real email or any insightful comments either.
