Server Outage

The hosting provider for is experiencing issues with the database server and is actively working to bring it back online.

I will post updates here as they become available.

15:15 MST: Root cause was an issue with the database server RAID hardware (guess it was hardware related after all!) The solution involved RAID card replacement, RAID and Motherboard BIOS updates, and a full filesystem checkdisk. Although the site is back online, the DB server is running a RAID rebuild which may slow performance somewhat.

15:10 MST: Server is coming back online now.

14:50 MST: Doesn’t appear to be a hardware error. There was disk corruption error in a database log file (not the bcaching database).

Upcoming Release

I’ve been busy working on a bunch of features lately so the upcoming release is a bit more significant in scope than earlier ones have been. As a consequence the chance of bugs and issues associated with the release are increased as well.

Unfortunately my testing team currently consists of … well, myself and I would appreciate any help I could get from a few real users before I unleash a big mess on everyone. So if you would be interested in participating in some pre-release testing, jump over to the forum post for more details.
