Site Down: The Crash of O'Keefe


Crash on the levee, mama
Water's gonna overflow
Swamp's gonna rise
And no boat's gonna row

A server crash took this site down for about eight hours. It was fixed with alacrity and competence as things like this always are with the venerable and wonderful Hosting Matters. I guess that the O'Keefe server is toast. I'm being restored on Picasso.

And now back to our regularly scheduled pogrom.

The same thing happened where I worked. Our server had a hard drive failure. Fortunately it was at Christmas vacation time so everybody just went on vacation. When I returned in two weeks, everything was working fine. The IT people sent the hard drives to a data recovery firm and replaced the old server with a new one.

I didn't know if it was you or this tired ol XP machine I keep coaxing.
