And we're back!
« on: July 05, 2011, 09:50:28 AM »
The site's been down for three days following massive downpour here in Copenhagen (two months' worth of rain in two hours!). My webhost had their servers flooded despite metal doors that were supposed to hold out water and various redundancies. They've worked around the clock from Saturday evening to now, moving 300 servers from the flooded site to another site, buying and installing new hardware and restoring backups.

We had our basement flooded as a result of the rain, but luckily didn't really have much of value down there and had already stacked most of the boxes high on chairs in case something like this happened again (we also had our basement flooded a few years ago). So as annoying as it was to have the site (and all my other websites) down for three days, we got off cheap compared to some people.
