getting complacent

By: Steve98052 , 10:25 AM GMT on December 31, 2010

My station had been working without a hitch for a while, so I wasn't keeping an eye on it all the time. However, some time after 3:25 am on the 29th, my monitoring software stopped uploading data to the server. But did it tell me about that? No such luck. It just silently stopped.

Not long ago I noticed, but by that point I had almost two days without data. Oops.

Maybe I need to throw together some kind of program that will ping the server for my page a few times per hour, and e-mail me a warning if the data gets stale. Then I'll know to do something about it. For now, however, I guess I just need to keep a closer eye on the page.

(The edit was just to fix goofed up tags, not content.)
