Website downtime during the past few hours.

Postby phreadom » Thu 08.07.2008 11:34 am

As I'm sure some have noticed, we had some downtime over the past few hours.

There was a database error and some file corruption and we were forced to restore from yesterday's backups. :( So unfortunately posts between yesterday and today were lost. :( We are very sorry!

Things should be back up and running smoothly now though. If you notice any problems, please let us know! :)

Thank you for your patience!

Whew!

For a minute there, I was starting to wonder if I'd been hallucinating something, as I was SURE I'd seen a response to post 1, and a question on post 2, and...

Man, I feel so much better. :)

Everyone should give Phreadom a virtual pat on the back for all the work he did yesterday. He really put in an extra effort.

I really hate losing yesterday's data. But we had no choice.

Well Phreadom and Rackspace (the host) did the heavy lifting. All I did was stay glued to the computer worrying until midnight. :shock:

But which head to we blame?

Ahh, I get now why you've been two headed so long, to confuse your detractors.
