Down on the server farm

Running fine. The upgrade from Fedora 29 to 30 gave problems; when you reboot after the upgrade, servers that have been continuously upgraded from F20 have the wrong version of grub, because grub doesn't get upgraded when you upgrade the versions. There is a fix for that, which I found on Google.

I discovered this after we had a two hour power cut, and all the servers had to shut down. And when I tried to reboot, I discovered the grub problem.

It's 22 years since I started membership subscriptions for this web site!

I checked the site statistics that Sandra counts up each night.

At the end of May 2019, there were about 1,709,000 pictures (504 gigabytes), 587 gigabytes of video, 17453 text files (mostly stories) and a total of about 1094 gigabytes. There's 530,000,000 pictures altogether in Newsthumbs, increasing at about 2 million per month.
