A day lost

johnboy 23 May 2007 14

Well as many of you noticed, the site was down for the last few hours.

Something or someone killed off our databases. Fortunately you’re now looking at the backup that ran last night.

Unfortunately that means today’s stories and comments have all gone.

So we get a second bite at the cherry.

Aww and you lost that glowing tribute from ABC Stateline…

There also appeared to be a hiatus the night before last…comments posted at around 9:00pm gone by yesterday morning…including my sycophantic tribute to JB.

Not complaining, it’s good to get used to rolling blackouts: an everyday event in most ‘3rd world’ countries.

Just in case you had nothing to do over the early hours of this morning (ie. sleep – unlike me). You may have noticed that RiotACT was AWOL again… Although this time it wasn’t some nefarious cracker, it was me attempting a few upgrades to our server that didn’t quite work.

I blame heterosexual liberal voting recumbant cyclists, ActewAGL and a lack of coal-fired power stations.

Conspiracy theory? I guess big brother finally caught up with a theory or two.

They will add to the terrors of the operation.

But, as in South Africa, we’ll all just move our hosting arrangements to the first world.

Rolling blackouts will apply to media sites as well?

It was Al Gore’s army of minions; after Ralph started to raise a few inconvenient truths.

Yeah, and it disappeared between me starting to type, and pressing submit, on a topic that hasn’t reappeared.

Luckily, everybody will be better off for not having to read it…
