Code:
slackpkg update
finish with an error:

Until the mirrorbrain service comes back up, you're welcome to use my slack-mirror-speedtest.sh script. It will help you determine the fastest mirror. It does default to the US mirrors, so if you reside in another part of the world, you can replace that list with one from /etc/slackpkg/mirrors to test servers closer to your.

So it was down at least 3.5 hours :/

For anyone curious, here's what happened:
httpd-2.4.47 had been reverted in /patches back to 2.4.46, and I'd applied that patch the night before. I *always* give a complete restart to httpd any time I upgrade it (as I've been bitten by similar issues in the past), but well, I guess something distracted me and I did *not* do what I *always* do on this particular occasion. When the logrotate from cron finished, it did "/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd graceful" which failed *hard* due to the running version of httpd not matching the "let's graceful restart this httpd binary" version on the filesystem.

I was notified of this problem at approximately 0930 local time (roughly 1.5 hours after the OP posted here), but all I had was my cell phone (and I don't do "computing" from it). ssh access to mirrors.slackware.com is restricted to only a few known IP addresses and via key only (no passwords accepted at all), and Pat's known IP addresses had changed since we last updated them, so... yeah, fun times. rob0's exact method of access will remain undisclosed, but his services are appreciated :-)

As an aside, I didn't miss the httpd restart on just mirrors.slackware.com though - I missed it on numerous other machines. They don't all do the log rotation at the same time, so the only one that I noticed was harrier.slackbuilds.org when it stopped responding to httpd the night before. At the time, I (incorrectly) assumed that I'd just forgotten that one machine, kicked rc.httpd, and all was (as we would learn later, NOT) well.

Sorry for the trouble...
