Exclamation Further Downtime 3/25/09

Bad news folks. The hard drive in the new box yielded it's soul finally. After a while the host realized it should really be replaced so we are waiting it to be up and running again. We will have to reinstall everything on to it so it might take a day or two.

Downtime Begins: 3/25/09 6PM EST

Rough Estimate of Completion: 3/27/09 8AM (arbitrary guess)

Sorry again for all the inconveniences..

Have a good day!

There is a saying in my country: Don't go ass first in to a room where d***s are measured.

Sorry about this, back on topic please

almost sounds like the move to Denver has been a mistake. maybe a new box in the Chicago Center would have been better. Hind site 20/20 and all. I mean seriously is SoE running this Denver site? It has been less that steller so far. But lets hope /crossesfingers that the new HDD fixes all that ails us.

Don't think it's that bad Banky. Hard-drives are like cars. Some will last for years and have no issues, others spend more time in the shop than in the garage. You just never know which one you get when you pick it out.

Thanks for the heads up. Glad it is something that can be fixed. More people just said Thanks and not CRY. In hind site SoE NEVER gave you this much info...

Just my 3 cents. But the devs do work for free.

Devs keep up the good work.

I'm glad we get a new one, should be much less issues now

I wish we had SSD hard drives, they never die.
