That agrees with my experience. When specifying the optional reason you
must also specify the optional service.

Subject: Re: [hobbit] DOWNTIME ALERTS

Using the syntax I found in the maillist archive appears to have fixed
this for me.  Should have tried that prior to 
posting, sorry about that.

Now in bb-hosts:
"DOWNTIME=*:*:1000:1200:"Tim Testing"

Even works with the typo (extra quote).

The rule did not alert the page went blue but the info page only
Planned downtime:	All days:*:1000:1200:
Fixing the typo fixed the info page and everything else worked as

The key point is the additional *: in the line.
"DOWNTIME=*:*:1000:1200:foo moo" works
"DOWNTIME=*:2200:0730:foo moo"   does not work

Thanks and Regards,
