Domestic help killed Roon

Today my domestic help :broom: pulled the power plug on my ROCK NUC. It was not the first time this happened.
That first time I followed the hint Roon gave me: go to to solve this problem.
Unfortunately, this is the wrong solution. Doing so, I had to restore all my settings from a backup, what took a lot of time and hustle.

This time I went to the ROCK server web page and restarted the Roon Server. Half a minute later all was up and running again :slightly_smiling_face:.


This is how it should be.

Last night I was woken up by a terrible lightning storm when lightning stroke right outside my window. It sounded like a bomb had exploded, with the windows rattling… I ran to disconnect all my electrical equipment, but was too late… my Roon server which is still not connected to an UPS had shut down. I left everything disconnected and went back to sleep. This morning, nor the Roon server nor my fridge would switch on. Thankfully, after checking with a multimeter I found out that the mains voltage was hovering around 40V…

I connected everything to another circuit which was fine, and thankfully no damage was done… Of course, as always, Internet was down, because the ISP’s switches on the post outside were fried. So, this same morning these guys appeared and changed the connection to fibre. I am always surprised as to how efficient this ISP’s support works, here in a little rural Colombian town. Have this happen in a big city, say Bogotá or Medellín, and you will wait some days, having to call again and again. Here, they know me by name and, checking in at 8 am for work, they were at 9 am at my doorstep.

This is the SMART status of my NVMe boot drive:

129 ‘unsafe’ shutdowns due to power outages in a little more than two years. And yet, it is working fine. Roon is up and playing music. But yes, I know that I need to get immediately an UPS to connect the server, router and fibre modem. Don’t challenge good luck!
