 Post subject: Server Problems
PostPosted: Mon Mar 10, '08, 6:11 pm 
I would like to apologize to everyone who has had problems accessing the site in the past couple of days. Unfortunately, our host has been having some unexpected problems that required the replacement of several hard drives. We have lost some of the messages posted to the forums on Sunday because of this, I'm afraid.

Early Sunday morning, someone decided to shut off power to the servers of the site's host. They did so without notifying the host about this at all. As a result, many of the servers' drives were fried and had to be replaced (at 5am on a Sunday mind you - it's surprise to me that they even found replacements!), with this site and others on the same host being restored from backups. Fortunately the backups were very recent.

Later, the host's database server (where the forum posts are stored) blew some more drives and those had to be replaced and more backups restored as well. It's due to this that we've lost messages posted on Sunday. Things appear to be mostly under control now and hopefully there will be no more problems.

Good to know all this, I was wondering what the heck was going on the last two days. At least problem has been fixed, or so it sounds.

wow, that's a bummer! I got to read some of the posts from yesterday that are now missing, and I also posted some, so I can see it was quite a loss. I didn't know what was going on. I hope everything is fixed now. I almost went freaky when I couldn't get to the board, lol.

Yeah, the lost of the posts really annoys me, too. I'm just glad the restored backups were very recent, so we didn't lose more than a day's worth.

I lost my ramble?! Awwww man! That was sooo cool too. It really helped me get my emotions out. :bang: But still, I guess its good seeing as how my friends will never read it. I'm too nice to let them know that they were making me angry. Kinda sad actually.

I just now got around to browsing the board (whee, lurking!) and I read a thing or two about posts gone missing... This definitely explains it, so my curiosity has been sated for now. :lol:
