Server Updates

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019
- All available server updates were applied.  Only Ubuntu servers had any, and those were deep, so all the Ubuntu servers were rebooted.  The RHEL/CentOS servers had no updates available, so I’ll let them age another week at least before they get a reboot.
