email, ftp, ssh(for those that had it) php, cf are all back up on the members.evolt.org server. browsers.evolt.org and lists.evolt.org are back up as well while dir.evolt.org remains down. Pretty much anything that connected to mysql is going to be down for a while yet. If you had a members.evolt.org account and used mysql, you've got a 50/50 chance for data integrity. This includes me too. I'm having a really difficult time getting any data integrity, but we'll see how it goes. Again, apologies for the downtime and thanks for your continuing patience. - .djc.UPDATE - 01:00 GMT, Monday July 2nd --
The machine is slowly but surely coming back. The hardware failure has been taken care of (it was a drive failure), and the data and applications are being restored/reinstalled. We're almost there, but getting the machine fully operational might take until tomorrow. We'll keep updating this article as things progress.Thanks again for all of your patience. We'll have you up soon. - bobNOTICE - 10:30am CST, Sunday July 1st --
The same machine that was hit by the evolt.org server outage June 20 2001is back down and all services mentioned in that article are again offline. It looks like hardware failure hit this time, and unfortunatly, nothing can be done until Monday morning. We'll have more information at that time. Thanks again for your patience. - .djc.
