Zero Reliability for Web Servers

I suppose technology just can’t be relied upon anymore. I have two websites hosted at a college, and neither of them works right now. This is happening way too often. The servers at said college are running Linux, too! I thought Windows was the unstable one, but Linux seems to crash a lot. Granted, the websites are nothing important, but the sites double as FTP storage for my homework (backup), so not having access for hours at a time is irritating. And, since they went offline after midnight, forget repairs until morning.

At least I have a consolation prize: the college’s main website is on the same servers, and it’s down, too. That’ll be a priority fix.

I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
