Forum outage - [what happened?]
PostPosted: Fri 01 Oct, 2004  Reply with quote

It seems the forum has been restored after a server outage.
Sorry for the trouble if you thought your post or PMs were deleted.

Please be patient as things are worked out.
It may be best to try not to post on the forums until a few errors are worked out.

yay, almost back in full business! thumbs

[Q - edit]

Now what exactly happened?

Yesterday has been a weird day.

29 september at about 21.30 my time the whole hosting company LD4all is hosted on went down due to a power outage.

Somehow all could be quickly restored exept the server LD4all was on.

Yesterday was spend trying to repair that server. It took so long that the company decided to employ a backup server - put all backed up data on it as a temporary solution.

So briefly yesterday the forum was back and locked. Users had dissappeared, PM's seemed lost. But fortunately that was all a dream.

Also I had disappeared

Now after 37 hours the server LD4all is on has been repaired and is back like it was before the outage.

I'm still a little shaky but very happy that we are back! Everything seems to be much faster too!

The hosting company has offered one free month of hosting as compensation for this. I'm not sure if I'll take this offer. Do you feel that this is enough compensation?

Yes, 1 month seems fair, at least the forum is just like before the crash and we didn't lose 2 weeks of posts (as happened with the previous host).

I had this weird dream that half the forums were locked and that Avatar Reaper and Technodreamer had merged into one Techno Reaper. I dreamt that PasQuale had been removed from the site and (Pas)Quuipo had taken over.

Glad to see none of it was real. phew wink5

Wow I had the exactly the same dream! I remember dreaming that almost all of this forum was locked and... PasQuale our goddess ceased to exist... and PasQuuipo took over. I remember swimming 1,000,000 miles to the lifeboat.. and collapsed in Q's bed... And techno reaper....

whew what a bad dream! *faints*

All my forums were down this week. DV has been flirting with coming back, but no dice yet, then the buddhist forum was having server-transit issues, then LD4all was struck by lightning...what am I supposed to do, read a book? Or talk to--LIVE PEOPLE?!? How nerve-wracking.
