Outage Saturday 30/4/22

Hi all,

As you might have found, last Saturday (April 30 2022) we had some downtime... We try to keep our website up & running as much as possible, and so far we've been doing that pretty well! Unfortunately yesterday the main server that hosts the website completely died... as in 'gone.. nobody home', it would not even show the bios on power up. I first hoped it was the power supply, but after replacing that the server remained as dead as a doornail.

so... after spinning up some spare hardware & moving the data (all 130GB of it) we have he site up & running again, and we did not loose any data.

Sorry for the inconvenience! We'll be building a new server in the weeks to come (don't want to rely on the spare hardware that is already a little dated) and once it is up and running (and proven to be reliable after thorough testing) the site will be moved onto it!

regards,

Paul

Thanks for letting us know. I think many like me want to help you continue this effort, personally I would make a small additional donation so that you can have the appropriate material.
Thanks again for your efforts and help.
Totally united
