Obscure.org back up

Obscure.org was down for about 4 hours yesterday morning. We lost the previous 6 hours of data due to a fatal failure of the disk array. I restored from backup onto borrowed hardware. We are still mulling our options regarding repair, replacement, or other choices regarding what hardware we will be able to use over the long term.

Obscure.org is down for emergency maintenance (restoring from backup)

The RAID array on Obscure’s main server failed (again) this morning, so I’m restoring from last night’s backup onto borrowed hardware. It may be this evening before the system is operational again.

I’m afraid that we’re going to need some new hardware or a different hosting arrangement once the immediate crisis is resolved.
