a close call

Boy, THAT was close. My bind/name-d(for those who want
to know how to pronounce it)/dns server was fritzing out.


	ndc reload
	ndc restart

I could

	ndc stop

but it didn't really stop anything. I kept getting socket errors
and it wouldn't re-establish my server with the updates i'd been
working on...


	telinit 1

took me to runlevel 1, and then ^D continued on to runlevel 2.
Gladly, ndc/named/bind/dns/whateverthenomdejouris is working

And i didn't have to mess with my uptime. Whew!

  8:24am  up 391 days,  9:20,  2 users,  load average: 0.03, 0.07, 0.01

Close call, there... :)

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #10 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
Looking to run a command or two at REGULAR INTERVALS?  Try
"crontab -e" for starters (see "man cron" or "man crontab").
You might also investigate the "anacron" package.
