I thought it best that I take a minute and post about the server outage that Nifty and the Den have been suffering all day.

The power went out some time very early this morning. While this is usually not a big deal, the hub the server is connected to was apparently worse for wear. As such, it failed to come back online. I was unable to physically access any of the hardware until about an hour ago. The hub has been replaced and, as you can see, the sites are back online.

My sincere apologies for any pain and suffering that this may have caused.

Thanks for keeping the Den alive.

It's good to know.

Remember, if you need parts or paypal or whatever to help defray, we're still here. Heck, I paid for Nifty for awhile myself. Of course, I'm poor now, but...

Thank you for the offer. I'm doing OK. I had spare parts lying around. I will be buying a beefy UPS to help keep this from happening in the future, but I don't see that as a cost that should be passed down just yet.

Thank you, too, for being understanding. I wanted to provide the best service possible.

Unfortunately, this won't be the only outage in the middle term. I have to actually physically move the server a the end of May. If someone has a reliable broadband connection, lives in the Bellevue/Redmond area, and will let me set up a box in their basement for a couple days, I would appreciate the help (and likely the boards would, too).

Going to assume that you mean up in WA...

I'll see if I can get anyone to agree to that neil. No promises, because I've only one close friend up there, who is a broke college guy, and the rest are friends of friends, but I'll give it a go.
