a.m. vs. p.m.

The IP address of our WAN here at Reinvented HQ was set to change at 5:00 p.m. today, which was to have made for a busy day scurrying around updating various places here and abroad where our IP address is hard-coded. Unfortunately, it turns out that what we thought was to be 5:00 p.m. was, in fact, 5:00 a.m.. So when we woke up this morning, we were entirely off the air.

I’m gradually catching up with the changes that need to be made — this site just came back online after I turned on routing. Email seems to be working. Our phone system needs a little more work. And there’s some DNS catchup work to do. But we’re on the road to recovery.

DNS has been updated, so it should be smooth sailing from here. Touch wood.

I suppose it’s mistakes like that that inspired “military”/24 hour time, which is a convention I’m sympathetic to. BTW, I notice the time stamp beneath your comment above reads “11:56 ADT” with no a.m. or p.m. or obvious indication of whether that’s because the stamp goes to 24.
