Just curious..I was on it a few minutes ago, and navigated over to CNN to check on the latest world happenings.  When I tried to reurn to OO, I got a popup saying that "http://www.octopusoverlords.com could not be found".

God this bites.  Anyone know what's going on over there?  I wouldn't be so grouchy about it normally, but I've been sick for the last 4 days and now I have a fever and I feel too crappy to game (but don't mention anything like that over on Qt3 or some of them will call you an attention whore and rip you a new one--on the eve of Christmas Eve, even, but I digress).

Anyway, here's some good stuff-- the Chronicles of Narnia Rap from the the most recent ep of SNL:

It can only be the LaPorte. Download as much of the internet as you can before the rest of it goes down for good.

Because we don't know anything.  Rip's been notified via e-mail, but we haven't heard anything from him. Could be his whole server's down, could be he's out of town for Christmas and doesn't know there's a problem.

Sorry I don't have more news... but I would count on it being Monday or Tuesday before the site is up or we know anything more.  

Merry Christmas though.

I wonder if OO is using the same hosting company as me....My site has been down since yesterday.  Contacted support and they said they had a hard drive crash.  Is it possible to have 2 hard drive crashes within 6 months??  I'm moving my hosting right now...just crappy service ever since they got bought out by some Canadian company (not that there anything wrong with being Canadian!  Tongue )

Yes, but it's kind of strange how a business doesnt PLAN for a hard drive failure.  Servers typically use hardware RAID, so if a drive goes out, you just put in a new one, and it rebuilds the RAID setup.

You can do something as basic as mirroring, which is just what it sounds like- two hard drives, and they are exact mirrors of each other.  Best is RAID 5 or higher, which takes 3 or more drives and sets redundant information on the array of disks, so it can tolerate a loss of one (or more, if you go higher than raid 5) drive.

I generally don't consider a computer to be a 'server' unless it has raid 5 or higher.  Now that expanded storage hardware like SAN, NAS, etc are getting cheaper and better, that view might be up for a slight revision, but the basic idea remains the same.
