Web site and Email outages on Saturday April 22

St. Marks’ers will be doing a lot of work around the church on Saturday, April 22nd as mentioned in the previous news post, On St. Mark’s Day, help us reach out, spruce up and sing. The St. Mark’s Sysadmins will be no exception.

I plan to do some cleanup on the computers. This includes removing the covers to try to clean out the accumulated dust and dirt. I also plan to install a second hard drive in our server to use for expansion of the /var filesystem which won’t be large enough to contain all of the old hardcopy St. Mark’s documentation that we need to store in electronic archival formats. Other physical tasks will be performed as we determine the need.

I also plan to install all of the latest software updates on our computers to provide for additional security and enhanced functionality.

There will be some periods of time on Saturday during which the St. Mark’s web site and email systems will be unavailable.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
