Subject: 85 in the shade
From: John Bondon
My apologies to those who tried to get on the hiking website this past Sunday morning only to discover it was not functioning. I disocvered this myself while on my way to the hike, so I turned back and headed back to correct it. Website was back up by 9:50AM. I use automated monitoring software that normally notifies me by email whenever there is a problem with the website. I did not notice any such warnings in my email box that morning. Later I realized I had not received ANY emails at all all day (highly unusual for me). Turns out my email was also not working due to an upgrade to my company's email system taking place that weekend. So much for my early warning system! :(
The hiking website is still on track to change to a new server. Over the past couple of weeks I have been in the process of copying all the data over. I imagine I will make the cutover sometime before this weekend. This will occur overnight and should cause very little downtime.
For last Saturday's Nimitz Trail hike we had 21 hikers turn out, plus 2 dogs and one little girl. It was a beautiful day for a hike, a bit hazy but visibility was good enough to clearly see the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. Andrew reports that the temperature was about 85 in the shade by the time the hike ended.
