Subject: Filthy Forum Downtime
My server was down for most of today, for reasons I really can't explain.  First the server basically FREAKED OUT, not responding to any attempts to communicate with it, then the router died, meaning I couldn't communicate with anything on the network in Japan.

Zumi's mom, a great old bird, managed to reinstall the ISP settings on the router with very little supervision.  She failed, however, to forcibly restart the BLACK computer and instead rebooted the GREY one, which had as little effect on the black computer as you might imagine.

It's back now, obv.  Sorry for the downtime.  =(

I don't know what's going on with the server in japan, but it's killing me.  Three significant outages in the last three weeks, once 'cause of the router, twice 'cause the server just freaked out.

Something must be done!

The server troubles have been identified as a dying harddrive.  Bsically it has a brief error and the RAID drivers just freak out, and the server goes catatonic.

<sigh>

Just what I wanted, a chance to make expensive changes to the server in japan!
