    Due to a total system failure the site was off line for a while. I expected to loose several days worth of data. A very good tech was able to get the failed database server up and running again with a PSU hanging out of the box and wires all over. I don't care so long as the data was not lost. I'll be moving the database to another server quickly. It may have to wait until tomorrow night.

    Thanks for the patience. I'll take precautions to prevent this type of problem.


    Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name

    Whew! I was beginning to think the site had been taken down permanently. Glad you are still here.

    That will never happen, I will turn it over to someone before that point.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date, knowing we are 'hanging by a thread' will help us keep the faith if your PSU decides to blow it's Mosfet's again, do you have descent surge protection on the mains supply side?.

    Do you have an alternate website page on a different server where you could 'post' a status if things go 'tit's up' again?

    Yes... when the server is down, I realize that I'm a forum junkie and am unable to get my fix.

    The database was running on a high end server with lots of redundancy, that server ended up with a full hard drive because of other databases running on it. So, I moved it over to another server until I could find another DB home. Well that server had a power supply fail and there is only one. So right now it's running with the top off and another power supply hanging out of the case I'm going to find a new home for the database this weekend. I may move it back to the good DB server as it now has space.
