The DeRidder Branch of the Beauregard Parish Library is now open Monday through Wednesday and Friday between 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM, Thursday between 9:00 AM and 7:30 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Details of our Phase 3 operations can be seen here. We are working on hurricane clean-up and remediation to return service to our rural locations as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
We suddenly went off the air at about 1:40pm today for around a half hour. Best we can figure at this point is we have suffered a failure in the RAM in our primary Internet host. As of now we are running on only one bank of memory, leaving it with 4GB instead of the usual 8GB. All services are running close to normal for now.
Expect more downtime this evening when we pull it back offline to open it up, inspect and attempt to repair it.
Update 6:45pm: Repairs completed for now. The memory wasn't bad, the slot was. Well! That is something you don't see every day. So after reshuffling we have 6GB and that will have to do for now. No more outages unless something else goes Foom!
