UPDATE - 12:15pm CST, Tuesday July 3rd --

email, ftp, ssh(for those that had it) php, cf are all

back up on the server. and are back up

as well while remains down.

Pretty much anything that connected to mysql is

going to be down for a while yet.

If you had a 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. - bob

NOTICE - 10:30am CST, Sunday July 1st --

The same machine that was hit by the server outage June 20 2001

is 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.
