    Hard Drive Failure
    Sorry, everyone. We had one of the main database drives fail over the weekend. The first drive we thought we were going to replace it with is also having problems. The second problem may be compatibility or something. We've got someone working on it right now, and hope to have it resolved within hours.

    Hopefully, the hardware issues have given you a little extra time to get out and do some holiday shopping or other useful stuffs. :)

    I'll update this soon if there are any breaking developments.

Woohoo! More info, finally. I can't wait to have my journal back up.

Everybody read: hope to have it resolved within hours. Don't open up any more reports about it, and close them if you already have. Just sit and wait patiently. Or go outside and pick some flowers or something.
Peace.

Just curious what is the specs on your servers? What OS are you running? (probably using winblows NT aren't you?) Aside from that i'm just curious what size drives do you got, and what processors you using?

I forgot to mention a couple things in my original post.

1) All data is backed up nightly, so except for a few stray things that might have got eaten during the actual crash, all journal entries, comments, etc. should be safe.

2) We blame Bertho for all hardware problems - not because he's actually responsible, but because we think it's fun to do so. :)

3) Blurty doesn't use Windows.

Thanks for letting us know! I don't mind the extra downtime, personally. :] Can't say the same for everyone, though.

I'm probably going to get some snappish reply for some reason. :D

Thanks for thge update and thank you so much for bringing my little Blurty back! I was missing it. I was just wondering if paid accounts will be available any time soon. Or if not, how can I help support Blurty?

mmm everything is calm now, big old blurty is back, until next time chaps.

I did have a massive laugh reading all the comments at the last count 361 on the first update and 74 on this one.

Kept me amused for hours, keep up the good work.

tata for now...

Hey... A suggestion?

I just found out about this page. :o I didn't even know it existed. I thought you would have put up a link or something on the front page. Hehe, maybe you can do that? I thought that my account was deleted or something for the past few days... :\ Or maybe at least make this page a little more known?

Thanks :)

I'm just wondering, is this possibly the reason why it says "a server upgrade is in process" when I try to log on to the blurty website using AOL? It works fine using Internet Explorer. Is this all related to the database problem?
