umec's forum site is also locked to me. someone changed the password. (about time too, though. the password was a no brainer...hope nothing happened and MadCat's just cleaning house)

Kinda concerned about www.mindphyre.com I hope he didn't get in trouble for the 200megs i uploaded that he said i could. hmmmm...

It should be back up now, sorry for the long wait.

Here's what happened:

I left for a vacation on Aug 10, everything was working just fine, no problems.

Aug 13: the Mindphyre (My employer) server goes down, our server administrator writes a memo saying that the hard drive had crashed and that he was taking the server and the back-ups home to work on it overnight.

Aug 20: I return from vacation, the server is still down, and my boss is pissed like you wouldn't belive. Aparently our server admin was "burned out" and "needed to take a few weeks off" with the server and the back-ups in an unknown location.

Aug 21: Boss gives up trying to get the server back, gives me the job of server admin and orders parts next day air for 2 new servers.

Aug 23: last of the parts arrive and servers are built

Aug 24-28: Websites that we host are rebuilt 1 by 1 from scratch. Final site went online today.

/me needs another vacation =P

mindphyre down. down HARD...i have detailed and concurrent backups of the entire thing, but i'm sure that's not needed. more like something harsh happened to the server and all.

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

well, MadCat just PM'd me...which was the good news. unfortunately, it's up in the air whether or not i'll be online with another host anytime soon.

*shrug* I'll stick with MadCat until i get offers, but i'm really hoping mindphyre gets it's act in gear - it's such a bother repairing dead links. blech
