The perils of running your own game site

I always prefer the control over simplicity. So, i went to upgrade the database component of my web site (i run my own hardware) and everything crashed! Of course, can't have an easy day off. Scrambling for 2 hours i made sure everything was up to date, port scan, yadda, yadda, yadda. No worries as its always backed up, but dang... i hate having the site down. Had to post a message until it all came back on line, database engine upgraded, now of course the server pages need to get recompiled... blah, blah, blah. Someday i may give up doing this myself, but i'm too much of a geek. Since i don't write much code at work any more, its my chance to stay up on some basic practices... well, its all back up and running... off to waste the day.
