MG is now back online

However unfortunately we've incurred some data loss in a few areas :(

- First, the forums themselves will be missing any posts after Tuesday, Jun 23 up to the crash.

- Next, the Dojo is unfortunately still offline and it will take some work to bring back due to a mix up with the backup process, where the data is out of sync with the site files. We'll work on getting this up soon, but I don't have an estimated due date for when yet so you'll have to wait. It's possible quite a bit of the content will have to be recreated.

- And last but not least, unfortunately my pet project site PastaPasta.com lost all of its data, and the backups had been misconfigured so it'll have to start from scratch again. As of writing this post PastaPasta isn't available, however I do plan to bring it back soon. Once I revive it you'll have to create a new account again. I'll make sure the backups are set properly next time so we can avoid this from happening again, but do keep in mind that I cannot be held responsible for any loss of sensitive data within PastaPasta.

UPDATE:

PastaPasta.com's data has been recovered! You can disregard the earlier note about all of the data being lost, I was fortunate enough to be able to recover all of it from the faulty drive.


The Dojo should be back sooner than expected as well, a status update will be posted upon its return.

UPDATE 2

The previous range of data loss for the forums turned out to be incorrect, it was actually any posts after Tuesday Jun 23rd were lost.


-----

Final Update:

Dojo has returned, everything is pretty much back to normal

As for what caused the crash, it's not uncommon for server hard drives to fail over time. It's actually been close to two years we've been running off that drive, and all of the constant read/writes on it finally took its toll I guess

Sorry about that, but I guess it's a small price to pay for a drive completely failing.

At least we got something positive out of this!

because it's a potentially wonderful source of good information on the game - not to mention Google SEO.
