  • The longest outage I’ve had in a decade is when my primary SSD died a 2 months ago and I had to reinstall using config backups. It was down for around a day.

    I’ve thrown a UPS on it and flown overseas for a week or two. It’s basically just email for me and the kids.

    I’ve had longer outages on hosted services, TBH.


  • I host my own mail. When it’s down, the mail just gets delivered after I get online again. Almost all mail servers are configured to retry over a period of several days before giving up.

    Once my health insurer sent me mail by post to tell me that my mail server was down. That was kinda funny.
