||Servers are being moved to our new Fiber feed this
week. During that time you may find sites to go down for a short time. The
new feed is faster and more reliable than the existing T copper lines and
we are excited to provide this service.
||A massive new server has been added to our collection.
Please note that we will be performing some shuffling and maintenance this
weekend starting 09/25/2010. Expect some service interruptions during that
||We added several servers supporting virtualization
allowing us to offer virtual server hosting.
||LexiSoft will discontinue all DSL
service by June 1st. We will be expanding our hosting, remote support,
and dedicated T's services, while scaling down consumer type
connectivity products, such as DSL.
||Internet communications problem on a route between
Dallas and Miami are affecting a large portion of the Internet. Even if
the geography does not seem related. The backup routes are overloaded
and as such access to some sites is extremely slow. We expect repairs to
be made through the day.
||Major Cable problems have been detected by us and
reported to BellSouth. A cable crew has been working on isolating the
problem since Friday. They finally isolated the problem to an Oak Tree
that severed part of the main phone cable on Babcock Street The cable is
full of humidity causing 2 of our T1 customer lines to go up and down. A
cable replacement crew will work on the cable on Tuesday the 11th,
during that time all our lines will be affected from time to time.
Ah... Florida Living!
||LexiSoft is expanding. We will be more than doubling
our available bandwidth resources this week!
||Hurricane Frances came and went. It left a lot of
damage in this area. However, here at LexiSoft we survived just fine.
Our generator kept all servers and systems running through the storm,
and afterwards, until our power was finally restored today. Many of our
customers are not so lucky, downed phone lines, power lines, and damage
to buildings is widespread. We wish everyone a quick recovery from this
nasty visitor! Thanks to Gina for staying in the offices during
the hurricane and keeping an eye on everything!
||A garbage truck cut a major fiber cable, leaving 10000
customers without phone and Internet service. The affected area is north
Wickham Rd. /Suntree. BellSouth hopes to restore service by 6:00pm.
One of our T-1 circuits was also affected, causing slower connection
speeds while traffic was routed through other T connections. The T-1 was
affected from 7:04 until 8:12 when we managed to have it reroute it over
a different fiber cable.
||Propane based generator installed and tested. We are
now covered over extended periods in case of a power failure. Although
we always used Battery based industrial UPS systems, the generate will
extend the power failure coverage to several days.
||Disaster strikes and our main database server lost its
hard drive and configuration, despite backup procedures. We are working on
restoring that system. Affected services: Client E-mail services are down,
billing system is down (bet you are happy about that!). We will restore
all services before day end.
||DSL Core Router replaced with a newly upgraded CISCO
router. You may experience outage between 06:00pm to 07:30pm. Please
restart your DSL modem if it does not come up automatically.
||NetBios ports are now blocked on all DSL lines as a
security precaution. If you wish to use NetBios to other sites, use a VPN,
or let us know that you wish to have ports on your connection opened.
||9:00 am - BellSouth will be out to rewire all lines,
T1's, DSL, Dial-up, etc. in order to increase reliability during heavy
Expect short outages this morning.
