My web connection has broken twice tonight. At the first time it was just about five minutes. The second break lasted for approximately half an hour.
After the second break, I looked at my ISP’s home page. Yes, you guessed it, there is a notice of scheduled maintenance which may cause periodical downtime between midnight and 6 a.m. local time.
But why on earth did they post the notice to their web site? When the connection breaks, I am obviously unable to read it there. Do they really think that I am in the habbit of visiting their site on a daily basis to see if there would be a scheduled maintenance?
It would be nice to get the message before the break, not after. When the connection resumes, I already know it was broken. It is of course nice to know the reason but an ISP could do better than that.
Still two hours and a half to go.
Update: The connection was broken from Saturday at 4. a.m. till Sunday afternoon at 5 with the exception of a few short up periods on Saturday evening. It has now been up for two hours and I am busy reading all the mail that has arrived on these two days. The ISP is going to hear from me tomorrow morning, they can count on that.
