Extended Server Outage

On Saturday, our new data center experienced a fatal air conditioning problem. The short of it, my dedicated server cooked got. No hard drive or data loss. Either the main board or power supplied got fried. I'm not too concerned which because our server was bucking for a replacement. We're running right now on a stable temporary server until I either build one or order a new pizza box this week.

For those that have a need to know or care, we've run a dedicated setup since day one: colocated private server. It's one of the reasons we generally don't have performance issues or downtime, unlike many other communities out there.

In any case, you have my sincerest apologies for the extended downtime. Our data center is in the process of replacements the defective units (we're talking about van size units, not little ones) this week. I wouldn't be surprised if it we have one more incident when they replace it but it will definitely not be for long.

Had me afraid you weren't home for an extended period of time and thus didn't pay the bills.

No, the bills get paid.. actually in advance sometimes even. This was strictly failed hardware.

Some times things like this are a blessing in disguise. We will be running on new shiny hardware after this. Also we'll also put some disaster recovery options in place to mitigage future downtime (i.e. secondary server @ different location) that should elminate downtime lasting more than a few hours like this.

Yeah, thanks for the text about this, Eric. While I wasn't about to admit, I was worried sick.
