I have a modem which works about 99% of the time. However, it sometimes causes Linux to perform an "oops". Whenever this happens, I see a notifcation that a message has been sent to www.kerneloops.org
This is all fine and good, but I'm wondering: Can the notification really have sent since the "oops" causes my machine to no longer be on-line? The modem disconnects as soon as the oops happens, so nothing could be sent right then. Does the daemon save the oops message and send it later? Or should I just disable the daemon because it's not doing me any good once I'm off-line?
