Server issues
« on: June 01, 2011, 06:28:38 AM »
You may have noticed DG was down for a few hours yesterday. After almost 3 years of uptime, the server finally had some disk issues. I have been able to recover it temporarily but I'm in the process of moving to some new hardware as I think this one is near the end of it's life.

The current server was always a stopgap anyway, it just ended up being more of a long term stopgap than I intended :)

You may notice some weird issues over the next few days (stream restarting/songs not updating on front page/etc) as I perform the move but the downtime should not be too long.

Thanks for the heads-up.

OK, the last server finally gave up the ghost.

I am in the process of transferring to a new box. There is a *lot* of setup to do when moving DG and it will take me a couple of days to finish everything up.

Sorry for the downtime, I'm working as fast as my connection allows to get everything moved over to the new box.
