The CPU upgrade for eskinews ended up being more complex than I thought. The Ross-180 CPU's required a ROM upgrade, but the ROMS were only provided for SS-10/SS-20, not the 4-ROM set for the 4/670. So I ended up moving the news machine to a spare SS-10 chassis I had totally forgot that I had and retired the 4/670MP which took more than I had originally anticipated. Meanwhile, the site that provides our newsfeed was also reconfiguring their machine. When ours came back up we were no longer receiving a feed. They've apparently borked something on their end and won't be able to fix it until tomorrow morning. So news is up here, and there is a dribble from a few minor feeds but our normal feed is down. You can read existing news, and post. We expect to get the incoming feed resolved tomorrow. -_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- Eskimo North Linux Friendly Shells, Web Hosting, 56K/ISDN/DSL, 2-Week Trial!
