anomalous downtime, part 2

Totally weird. Just like last time we were away, fredshouse was down and out. Server was still running, local access working fine, Apache apparently running fine, but no external access to the site.

Does your connection drop when there's no activity for a while? You might want to set up a background task that just pulls down something small 2 or 3 times a day.

I don't think that's it. It happened again last night, after I had been pounding on the server for hours. Seems like a networking problem local to the server, it manifests like an addressing failure and a theraputic reboot cures it. My debugging skills are crap though, so I couldn't figure out anything more useful yet. Sigh.
