Server Upgrades Incoming
I have acquired the necessary disks to do a major storage system upgrade on Aoede (the community server). It will be going from eight 147 GB 15K disks to eight or maybe twelve 450 GB 15K disks. The extra space should relieve some pressure that has been felt in recent months as new services have been desired. If the chassis is upgraded from an 8-bay to a 12-bay (which will determine if the server gets 8 or 12 disks), we'll also have the benefit of fixing a backplane issue that has precluded the use of channel 7 on our current system.
This will likely occur before the end of the year, so there will be some down time coming up. I'll be sure to announce a more specific window when the time gets nearer.
Some downtime is expected this weekend due to a web server move. The main PCRPG site, forum, and related resources are going to move to a new web host. Our time with Dreamhost has been mostly positive, but it's time to move on.
Game Server Downtime
The TRPG game server will be offline briefly for a database instance move within the next few days. Downtime should be minimal.
Most if not all pcrpg.org services should be back online. Sorry for the downtime, but it was unfortunately unavoidable due to a series of problems with the old server. The up side is that the server has been upgraded with faster processors, faster hard drives, faster (and more reliable) RAID controller, redundant network connections, and redundant power supplies.
The community server has been offline since Monday and it looks as if it will continue to be for at least a few days. A number of technical failures have caused this current state, but they will be resolved.
The main thing people will notice is that TeamSpeak is temporarily unavailable.
PCRPG Server Back Online
The disk situation has been repaired to the point where non-critical virtual machines may again be run. The PCRPG TRPG server should be online in a few minutes. Sorry for the downtime, but such things are occasionally unavoidable.
Server Back Online
The server is online again after what I assume was an extended period of downtime. Generally speaking, I only occasionally notice when the server goes down because I stop getting Tribes crash alert emails which normally come every few days.
If you happen to notice the server is offline, feel free to message or email me. Chances are good that I simply don't know and it's easily fixed.
