Just thought I'd drop in to tell everyone that even though OO is down, my hair is still up.


I think this is the longest outage we've had at OO since its inception.  It's actually allowing me to do real work AT work! 

I'm not sure I want to live like that...

psstt.... get Jeff V over here.  tgb missed him.

To paraphrase the great English author Garth Marenghi:

OO was like a candle in the wind....unreliable.

i kid, i kid.  here's hoping Rip gets everything back up and running without driving himself batty while doing so.

Just talked to Rip a bit myself and it sounds like he's hoping on having everything back in the next few days if I understand correctly. Just taking some time to reconstruct the stuff off the drives and get it back up and running.

If I understand correctly (and my geek speak when it comes to hosting hardware is very undeveloped), the raid controller corrupted the raid tables leaving the drives intact, but unaccessible. I believe Rip is taking the opportunity to move things to a more VM-based setup while he tries to recover the stuff off the drives.

What I don't understand is how this happened right after Rip got all that donation money from us.  I signed up for the lifetime membership for only $1000 and now Rip and OO have disappeared.  Aren't any of you other subcribers upset?

The traffic to GT is actually more concentrated on the front page.  That said, not a bad burst of traffic but still nowhere near our cap.
