I kinda freaked out there. The site was gone for about 6 hours!

Anybody else notice this?
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

i usually just assume that everything I thought was here was all in my head, and it never existed. :)

Well I had a power outage during what I guess was the same time... so I had bigger things freaking me out.

Yup, unfortunately my host's filer had some problems :(

Spoiler, one of our file servers, stopped responding and isn’t serving up files anymore. This will cause web service outages on the following servers:

arkanoid bob boppity caesar deblume defender dinar dinero ellipsis euro fidget forint franc gage galaga gap go grizli guilder happy ikari ike intheroo ivan joust katamari klax korben kroner limbo-randy mark marvin nimitz obiekty24 orbital paperboy patton peso pound ps5500 ps5643 qbert quid replicated researchdirector rygar scagnetti schilling scipio shekel slaughter tetris ultima wasabi yen yoda zorg

Someone’s already been dispatched to the data center and we’ll get this back up and running as soon as we can. The expected downtime is 30-45 minutes. Sorry everybody!

UPDATE (10:49 am Pacific): Looks like some of the networking hardware has failed and needs to be replaced, so this is taking longer than expected. Folks are working on this as quickly as they can and I’ll update this post as soon as there are any new developments.

UPDATE (1:42 pm Pacific): The hardware has been fixed. Right now, the drives are being checked for integrity before the machine can be booted back up. Unfortunately, this will take another few hours. Very sorry about the continued inconvenience. We’ll update this post as soon as the drive check is finished.

UPDATE (5:51 pm Pacific): Unfortunately, bad news: the file server came back up, but then it froze again. Our admins continue working on a resolution. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

UPDATE (10:38 pm Pacific): Things are looking up, we’ve got the file server back online and are fixing the mounts to the webservers now. There will be another update here when all is well.


Looks like its all back up now. Pain in the butt though. You can all take a sigh of relief, Xion and r2 Studios is still here ;)

I'm on shared hosting. In order to get my own server so that this kind of thing doesn't happen, and the site is faster, I'd have to pay many more $$$, which I can't really afford since I give everything away for free.

This kind of thing usually happens once every year or two, so hopefully that's it for another year ;)

Cliff :)

So far, it's not a big deal, because the whole web side of r2 Studios is nicely lightweight.

Well, this ordeal did remind me that most of the community has no outside relations. I was able to in contact with Lance, though that's purely thanks to me remembering GUI.Station. There's also Skin Consortium, of course.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Hah... come to think of it, we've got contact buttons under each of our posts, provided we added contact info to our Xion accounts. Forgot about those until now...

Most of us don't share such info though. Like Lance of Cliff.
