Hi guys.

You might have noticed the 2d-downtime that this server has experienced.

This comes down to a few unfortunate accidents. I hereby report:

* One hard disk failure
* Operating system failure

There was no critical data lost except for old useless backups. The HDD has been replaced and the OS reinstalled.

Cheers,
Oerg866

Oerg, please note that now the server time seems to be wrong now, I'm on GMT+1, it's 1:49AM here, but the server thinks it's 10:49 :|

I am posting this here and not in the Staff Lounge so other people can know about it and we avoid other threads about this incongruency.

Server 'time' itself was not wrong per se. before the crash it was off by 9 hours (you probably adjusted it forum-wise, so it's off by 9 hours now.)

I'll look into it .


Cheers

Thanks for the heads up Oreg. Make sure you stock up on HDDs. They are becoming prime real estate!

Well, Oerg and I managed to get it back to normal now. Some users might see more unread posts than they should because of some queries we ran on the database, sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey guys,

I'm having some severe trouble with the server right now. It still works, but within the next 2 or 3 weeks, i'll rebuild it so that all those little failures will not happen again..

What happened this time, the HDD with the bad partition is now dead for good, and upon a routine r/w stuff, it decided to error out and unmount BOTH DRIVES connected to that ide channel from the devices list. Meaning, the HDD with all data on it was unmounted too. I remounted them, and disabled the dead HDD.

God fuggin damnit.

I took the liberty to merge your three downtime threads, and change the title and the topic icon accordingly :ihih:
