I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms, I was all jittery and was hallucinating.

edit: this has to be the fewest people I've ever seen on ozzu, 5 registered users at this time I saw on the main page.

The funny part about all of of this is that I came into work this morning to find an email sent to all employees:

Quote:
Our company website is currently down. There was a problem (explosion) at the site it's hosted at in Texas. The actual server our site was hosted on is fine but they have to fix some other things before they can bring up everything that went down.

Small world, eh?

I think it was Saturday I got back in town and went online only to find my ISPs "We can't find that" page for Ozzu. I thought Bigweb forgot to renew the domain name untill I heard the news. :lol:

The ozzu servers are in Texas aren't they? It seems like I remember something in a really really old thread about there being a potential downtime due to a hurricane or something. Maybe spork's coincidence is no coincidence at all...

I didn't think it was a coincidence, I'm under the impression that our site is hosted at the same location.

I imagine so (@spork) I think the thing said it affected over 7000 customers. As a side note, when I get home I am going to try the little line in your signature on my linux machine just to see what happens. I will probably regret it.

Ya, the outage took down the entire data center, including a large portion of the data centers own servers that run their web page and held all their customers information. I found out after my friends web page went down and he was calling me every 15 minutes to figure out what happen lol.

Also the news sites didnt help much.

As you may have already noticed, our forum servers continue to lag due to very heavy load. This is in part to due to the fact that our outage is now being carried on several sites (including Slashdot). Even though we added servers to our forums last night, we are looking at alternatives at this time to provide simple status updates quickly.

There is no doubt alot of credit is due to Bigwebmaster and everyone involved in restoring all the websites as quick as they did.

But wow! life is sort of empty without Ozzu :lol:.

What a cruel day at work... every hour or so I become frustrated with whatever I'm working on at the moment, and Ozzu is USUALLY there to keep me occupied until I can focus again, but not today. :(

I should start downloading new threads in advance in case we go down again, lol

I do not plan on having ozzu down anytime soon anymore. I already have a full mirror going, just getting it updated now. I will have hourly db updates starting soon as well.

I've never played as many games of minesweeper as I did today. Boredom? You know it!

I discovered I can complete the 144 tile "difficult" layout in the Mahjong that comes with Ubuntu Hardy in 2:58 without any cheats. :D
