On 5 June, 2009, Weather may have suffered a hard drive failure, causing weather station data to be invalid. As of 7 June, 2009, it is still running, but throws I/O errors. Its uptime was 416 days.

Update, 10 June, 2009, Weather's harddrive suffered from I/O failure, however, it was recoverable when connected to another machine and all files were copied off successfully. Weather is now being reinstalled with a new hard drive and a modern version of Debian Linux.

Update, 29 July, 2009, Weather is back online. The old Pentium Vectra was replaced with a Pentium III Vectra VL400 running Gentoo Linux.
