Hi Guys,

Our hosting provider was experiencing an issue with one of our servers, and looks like they need to replace it completely.

We're in the process of moving and restoring the data on another server and hopefully it will be completed within the next few hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks.

When exactly did you receive virus threats?

This was simply a hardware failure of both disk drives on the same server (which is highly unlikely), so the only option left was to move to a new server.

I take it you already realised that our pretty little pictures have disappeared?

11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

Yes, indeed. We're working on it.

Unfortunately, both the main hard drive and the backup drive were wiped out, so I'm not sure if we'll be able to restore the images.

Please note that we haven't completed the transfer to the new server yet, so you might still experience some outages.

Your patience is much appreciated while we resolve it.

Thanks!

Oh, this is just a warning of your browser saying it's browsing from secured pages to non-secure page. This happened since we're changing the configuration of the server in order to make the move to the new server. For now SSL has been disabled to avoid such errors.

i suggest to use a raid system, depending on your space, you can use raid1 raid10 raid50 + 2 hot spare disks + redundant powersupply + 1 lowcost mirror server to sync realtime
