Just a quick note to apologise for the downtime on the site.

We didn’t mean to send you cold turkey, but after 432 days of continuous uptime, one of the hard drives on the server running the site decided to, you know, blow up.

Anyway, it’s fixed and we’ll continue to monitor to it, just in case.

The hard drive crashed, and everything still works? That must be a first.

Glad everything’s sorted then.


Only after a full recovery from our backup services.

Which was fun.

@Joseph, testing the restore procedure from time to time makes perfect sense!


There’s no redundant RAID storage on your server?

@michael-e Unfortunately not on this particular box

I see. Thanks.
