You may have noticed that our website, server, everything went down for a few hours. This was from about 7:40am to 1:00pm today (British time, 11th July).

This was due to the physical box dying for unknown reasons... Thankfully Sir @ozzie got onto the problem and got the guys at OVH (the hardware providers) to start the physical server back up.

It's the first time in a whole year that we had such a severe outage, so we aren't doing badly at all!

I'd like to thank @ozzie, our host, for keeping our server going very smoothly. In this case, OVH were to blame.

Anyways, now that we've solved that problem, back we go to placing blocks!

    If you don't have an automatic redundancy, downtime in the mid-high 90's is perfectly fine, even expected.

    Indeed. Apparently an engineer thought it was okay to reboot our box because it "stopped pinging", which wasn't actually the case. Despite emails from our awesome server hoster @ozzie he rebooted it anyways. I was able to restart most of our things, but IRC is at the moment a bit broken.

    IRC isn't in our hands, so all we can do is wait.

    Even though the downtime was around 10mins, I'm glad we're back and shiny!

    I can't connect to the chat though, this is weird.
    BTW, I had to tell encourage him he is capable of it. Every superhero needs his apprentice after all. :D

    No, Mish. Don't try to be a sellout. Just congratulate the guy and leave it at that.

    @Thijn is more than capable of dealing with everything I do so we complement each other.

    We've just traditionally done it such that I take care of Minecraft related things, and he works with the TF2 and L4D2 servers.

    If I was told I need to bring the TF2 and L4D2 servers back up, I would have waited for @Thijn in case I mess things up.

    So great props to @Thijn for doing it all! I'm sure your encouragement did help a little, @Mish, but deep inside @Thijn knew that he's a bad-ass sysadmin. B-)

    Yeah there's something broken with the LUNet web client.

    This link is meant to be the client (which is borked) and this stats page shows nobody's been connecting.

    High time you got a normal client.
