Subject: Hercules website and SVN server failure
Date: Tuesday 30th June 2009 14:57:29 UTC (over 8 years ago)
The trusty old Alphaserver 4000 that hosts the Hercules website and Subversion server suffered a power supply failure last night. (It's not good when you plug in a power cord and hear sparks.) I have two replacement supplies on order, and will be installing them in a redundant configuration when they arrive. I'm hoping I can get them shipped overnight, to arrive tomorrow. Until that's replaced, the Hercules web site at www.hercules-390.org will not be available. The Subversion repository will not be available either. Sorry about that, folks. I'm using an emergency backup system for email, so I don't have access to my old correspondence. A very small number of messages may have gotten dropped on the floor this morning when I was bringing up the emergency server. If you sent me email and are expecting a reply, please re-send.
