Near Catastrophic Failure!
« on: March 09, 2019, 11:10:37 AM »
My web host had a complete RAID array fail... 3 out of 6 disks either empty or corrupted. This entire site was down for something like 24 hours and when it returned, I had to rebuild the server from scratch.

The good news is: I have nightly backups!
The bad news is: Due to some glitch my last backup was from March 4.

Some forum posts and wiki edits may be lost but we're up and kicking again! \:D/

Ouch, I've worked with some bad backup plans in my day (magnetic tape that only 1 person knew how to control), but that's a painful RAID failure.  Glad you made your own backup!

Thanks for keeping the site alive

I poured my heart into that PM and you never responded?! Disgraceful!

Some parts of the site, mainly the card lists, still aren't accessible.
You don't get an error message, but it shows only a completely blank page.

Is there still some rebuild to do?

Well that stinks. I figured all was working but I didn't dive past the main page.  ](*,)

Should be good now.
