Server ON FIRE.

Recommended Posts

Howdy Imps!

So if you tried to get your fill of Impsy goodness at all today, you probably noticed that the server was down. A lot. All day long, for those of you in my hemisphere.

It turns out that our server actually caught fire. Our primary hard drive burst into flames and MELTED all through the system. ...or.. you know... it might have just quietly stopped working and didn't catch fire at all, but what's the fun in that? I prefer to think there was a very dramatic explosion, and some dude was walking away from it in slow motion.

All kidding aside, though, the hard drive DID fail, resulting in today's downtime. But not to fear, because way back when Imps started, I set us up with a RAID array, meaning we had a backup hard drive hanging out this whole time, copying the main hard drive exactly, ready to jump in and save our forum just in a case like this. All the posts the forum went offline with should be here now. Unfortunately, this means that the server will need to be taken down for 4-6 hours in the future to add a fresh backup drive to keep us safe, but that should be the last major downtime. Unless something else in the server catches on fire and MELTS. ...it could happen.

I can't guarantee when the repair downtime will happen for sure, but I'll do my best to make sure it happens in the off-peak (around 1am-7am EDT, 5am-11am GMT), and that it doesn't happen Friday or Saturday night.

Thanks for bearing with me, guys! As soon as I post this, I'm going to bring IRC back online and set up my own paranoid backup system just in case this hard drive fails while there's no new backup drive attached.

Cheers!

Thanks for all your hard work, Kyekpooikins. Let us know if you need extra fire extinguishers. Or vodka, that puts out flames, right? I know a great place to test the theory...

Thanks for the hard work, it's good to see Kyek is still alive and watching out for us :) Best wishes and thanks so much for the excellent paranoia. It's always good when it pays off and makes you look super prepared! <3

Wondered why things were down, its not like im meant to be doing work at work... right? Glad everythings ok though, and lucky that you were paranoid and had a backup in place!

Now... if only the server at work would melt!

During imp's downtime I saw myself browsing /b/ for hours, I'm slightly less human than I was 24h ago, please don't let it catch fire again. :wub:

Guild chat today (forgot to take a screen)

Formulamonster: IV's hardrive burnt and melted :D

Wife-Beater: Cardboard doesn't melt

Anyway, for once being paranoid pays off. It was annoying that it was yesterday because I had the heavy burden of creating a forum for my guild, so I was going to do it on IV. (I don't know how to do it tho :wub: )

I know i've never said this, but I use these forums plenty enough to warrant saying it - and should have done so sooner.

*heavily tries to avoid getting nose brown, or blue testicles for that matter*..... but I think you do a great job here and I for one, am very grateful. If I ever do decide to break from my standpoint of not donating to anything online, rest assured that IV/You is first on my list.

Thanks,

Odie


My main was OdieGoodDog/Odiekill, My other was OdieBadDog/Chesticles, My last was Pandurex

I was a proud member and lifetime fan of my only guild, Heaven Knights on Rosal

My characters were all orange and black and I have left Dofus

WHERE CAN YOU FIND HEAVEN KNIGHTS?

Is a Rosal based guild with no affiliations to any similarly named guilds on other servers.

They have their our own website and forums: http://www.heavenknights.co.uk containing loads of information about how the guild works!

HK is lvl124+, has about 110+ members and is the oldest guild on the server! As at Thursday 30th June 2011 they are also the highest level guild on Rosal server!

They might be recruiting, so visit their forums which you can reach via http://www.heavenknights.co.uk for more details!

I approve of the level of nostalgicness this thread brings me.

PS. Don't freakin place pieces of metal with polarized attraction and repulsion properties on harddisks!

HA! A few IV'ers signed up at my other forum, and for old time's sake, I put the magnet filter on there too. Cue the entire rest of the forum population freaking out and not understanding what was going on xD. Bitches deserve it, not knowing about IV.

There is only one true 'equality' in Dofus: not a single goddamned person understands An unspecified set of mathematics specific to a certain nationality, which is not inferior to the mathematics of any other nationality, as defined by Ankama® Games.

Fuck this whole city and everyone in it. From the row houses of Astoria to the penthouses on Park Avenue. From the projects in the Bronx to the lofts in Soho. From the tenements in Alphabet City to the brownstones in Park slope to the split levels in Staten Island. Let an earthquake crumble it. Let the fires rage. Let it burn to fuckin ash then let the waters rise and submerge this whole, rat-infested place.

Let's hear it for pieces of metal with polarized attraction and repulsion properties... and slightly less famous but equally amusing cranberry sauce. Oh that delicious jelly pool in the shape of a can.

Thanks Kyek! <3~

Thank you Yoli, you are awesome! <3

See that handsome cra? The eliotrope made him disappear through a portal, and that scheming rogue stole his name. I've lost my handsome cra and I'm married to a rogue. What is the World of Twelve coming to?
