View Full Version : Forum Downtime

No idea why the forum was down - most of "The Planets" (hosting company) servers were down.

It seems they weren't "down" merely "unreachable"........

Some swift database repairing later and we're back ;)

As soon as i find out i'll let you know.

There may be some unexpected downtime until this is resolved. Nothing major though i hope.

Alot of other forums were down including www.neowin.net, i guess they all use the same server

From The Planet :

Notice in Orbit:

At approximately 4:15AM CST, a pair of redundant Powerware 500KVA UPS units failed creating a power failure in section B of our DLLSTX2 datacenter. Emergency teams were deployed within minutes and power was restored within minutes but intermmittment power outages did occur until 6:45AM CST. Powerware, JT Packard, and electricians are currently onsite with over 100 Planet technicians working to resolve the issue. We do not anticipate any further outages . A formal RFO will be released once the team debriefs. We apologize for all issues that has caused.
