   posted by sibbi on 17-Oct-2020 19:11:22 (437 reads)
Hello there,

On October 14th at around 10:30 AM CET Server4you our hosting provider suffered an UPS failure which resulted in a good share of machines in their data center going down, including ours.

As of yesterday, most of the machines had been restored but sadly not ours. I contacted Server4you support and sometime between then and now the server is back up and running and appears to have suffered no ill effects

Sorry I had to delete the comments from DiscreetFX and Amigakit on this news item, there's a bug in the reply code which causes an edit of the post to be made instead of a reply in some instances which I need to find and squash at some point.

But yes this was a very long outage, undoubtedly not helped at all by the current situation making it difficult to get people on-site and probably also to have many people in the same location at the same time.

Thanks Sibbi. The delicate balance of the universe has been restored.

Well done to those beavering behind the scenes to get it up again! It’s a good thing it wasn’t over the AmiWest weekend or we’d have missed out on our Tabor news/discussion!
