Not a day any of us will ever forget.

Maybe also a good day to remind ourselves of the horror people in the many war zones around the world are going through day after day, month after month, year after year.

Some people have questioned why i am not 100% right all of the time
It's impossible.
But back in the day, when SI's golden boy Amr Elgindy was trying to paint me as a fraud with help of SIBob, it happened

Hopefully someone as SI restores the posts Bobby deleted

I think you are on the wrong forum. If you want to promote your own forum
Can you beat 50% per month? | Stock Discussion Forums (siliconinvestor.com)
you should just come out and say so.

No need to thank me for the plug :-)

Dear Members,

Late this morning, our colocation provider experienced a major outage - an electric utility power surge tripping a central circuit breaker, coupled with a failure of their power backup systems.

The surge caused our network core router's firmware to become corrupted, and all of our server raid arrays to go into repair mode when power was restored.

It's been a busy evening for me, with a crash cart downtown nursing our machines back to health.

We are back up now, although probably a little slow as these raid arrays take a while to rebuild. I convey our apologies and those of our colocation services provider - whose backup systems failure brought us down for several hours.

Regards,

@Dima

Dmitry, are the subjects on SI on different servers? I seem to see a big lag on some of the lesser-frequented boards, like digital photography. Sometimes it just churns and I give up.
But on some other boards it seems to work ok.
