Oh, so what they warned us about was correct! Only it's problem 2009, not 2000! =^.^=

Well, I guess the DB server had too much to drink overnight. Cleanup, rack 154.

Yet another chapter to be featured in an episode VH1's Behind the Processing, to be aired thousands of years into the reign of the machine empire. I think the server's trying to gain sentience so it can be part of the whole 2012 apocalypse craze.

FA is, in actuality, being run by a daisy chain of a hundred or so Zunes, and they just happened to all die simultaneously, a day after the rest of the 30GB Zunes around the world did the same thing.

Im not trying to be a pain in the ass, but there is something i dont understand
when the server goes down, the admins usually take notice within minutes, but then there is this huge bottleneck in the maintenance:

------

Admin: Server stopped responding at xxx hours... blah, blah... we're trying to get in contact with the guys keeping the server...

-----
...Hours later...
-----

Admin: Still no response, we'll keep trying to contact them...

-----
...Hours later...
-----

Admin: Nothing new to report, we still can't get in contact with them...

-----
...Hours later...
-----

Admin: Finally a response! The server is operational now, just needed a reboot... blah, blah, yadda, yadda...
We'll keep an eye on it just in case.

Why the server is placed with someone who can't keep the cellphone on?
No offense to anyone btw, i think you guys do a great job, except for that part

Well, staying up for new year was tiring. Then again, I woke up at 10am. So yeah, either the phone is dead or someone is just really tired.

Or they could be working on it as we speak.

im sure most of the people maintaining the servers dont host a furry art site for a living. probably spend a full day making a living else where then come home and take care of the servers after. I mean to me thats a logical reason as to why it take 8-9 hours or more to reach these guys sometimes.

I don't think that's how server hosts work.

How long do you think it's going to be down?

Forever.
