Subject: [aprsisce] APRS-IS Core restored (was: ANSRVR down?)
I'm pleased to report that thanks to Pete Lovell (author of javAPRSSrvr) and Gerry Creager (operator of first.aprs.net server) (and a few other kibitzers including myself), the issue that had caused the appearance of an ANSRVR failure has been resolved. The issue was caused by the failure of first.aprs.net (javAPRSSrvr 4.0) to recognize and recover from the restart of fifth.aprs.net and sixth.aprs.net (both aprsc) resulting in packets not flowing between those servers at the APRS-IS core.
This is a good time to send a mental (if not physical) "Thank You" to all those volunteers running the core, hub, and Tier2 APRS-IS servers that we all take for granted. It's kind of like the power grid, you never think about the electricity flowing until you turn on a switch and nothing happens. There's lots and lots of "stuff" out there that makes APRS play so well, and all of it is provided by volunteers in the amateur radio community.
So here's my big "THANK YOU" to the Infrastructure without which APRSISCE/32 would be nothing more than an OSM map display utility.
