my dal indeed

I was investigating why the Dal Timetable was down by taking a quick look at the NOC status page. While I was there I noticed a few entries about some of the my.dal servers needing a reboot:

Subject: restarted Contact: crashed with an internal java error (same issue as occurred on Monday July 19th). The system was restarted within a couple of minutes.

The recurring java errors are still under investigation.

Now, here I could say something about using Servlets for web applications or something about the risks of generic third party systems, but I think I will let the evidence speak for itself. :)
