BG Outage - update..

Post  HAC on Wed Dec 14, 2011 6:14 am

We've got a preliminary ETA; looks like about 10 hours... hopefully sooner, but no promises. Seems like a big thing went SPLAT! in their datacentre.. (NAS failure...)

Well... Having worked with real steam high HP power ..even steam can have he occasional SPLAT... (the real technical term we used was unprintable.)
The sort of problems I can remember vividly were bearing overheats, injector problems, and the odd high pressure pinhole leak.. Most everything else can b fixed by either oiling it, or hitting it...

Cheers
Harold

Whee even having a time frame seems like progress. I have something to look forward to when I want to kill my quilting project. A baby quilt is not as easy as I thought it would be to finish.

May I ask?

Is there a PARTICULAR reason that the move to a new server has 'caused more DOWNS than I remember ever having with the old one.

Since the move we seem to be having these on at least a monthly basis.

Just sayin' is all. Smile

I have to agree these do seem to be occuring more frequently and lasting longer..I mean it's 24 hours since I was last able to log onto BG and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms.

I think under the circumstances, and given HAC's history with computers, I think a "BOFH" would be a better choice. Very Happy

(PS. To those who don't know what it is, it's reference to something those involved with IT will understand, bit of an "in-joke" as it were...) Wink

(PPS. Goggle it if you really want to know, and read up on the activities of said BOFH - you'll enjoy it.)

The page is back to "not responding". I wonder if that's good or bad?
The BOfH reminds me of my good old times in IT... *sigh*

Eeep! Shocked
I lost my first weblog that way, back in 2003. The provider deleted everything, accidentally. Then the provider was deleted.

Well THAT didn't last very long..did it boys and girls?

I managed to access BG late last night just before bed. I got into work at midday today (I am working til 8pm) and within 5 mins of being on BG I'm getting the 'page not responding' message.

Anyone else?
