We are sorry (if you can see this)

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.

Since Tuesday May 23rd everything works more or less normally again. […]
