    Thank you. I was wondering why the slow access.

    It's a pleasure..especially to see so many familiar people at this great Wilder's Security Forum. Don't get here very much these days..but lurk often. :thumb:

    If they'd get more hamsters on the wheel, they wouldn't be worked as hard and they wouldn't be trying so hard to escape.

    Update 19:20 EDT
    -------------------------
    Unfortunately, a database server doesn't take kindly to being taken down without proper shutdown procedures and the
    restoration efforts are still under way. No ETA at this time.


    Sad..because at one time they had generator back up as you can see from this outage event back in 2006..happened again as I recall in 2008.

    That is my most visited forum. I usually spend hours there every day.

    Needless to say, I have lots of spare time on my hands lately.

    sigh

    I feel lost without DSLR :( I can understand the pain Justin is going through, lost redundant storage is usually never explained and blamed on old firmware. Hes going to get little sleep this week.

    I'm just wondering where I'm going to hang out online if DSLReports.com bites the dust.

    I read through the play-by-play description of the system failure and I cringed more and more as I read each event that went by.

    I have to wonder if he'll ever get any of that data back. If you ask me his chances are slim and none, and "slim" has left town and "none" is smiling on the bed and making himself comfortable.

    The dollar amounts alone made me nearly scream. I'd not blame Justin if he decided to just throw the towel in.

    The sequence of events he describes and the actions of those at the data center makes one wonder how many customers of other data centers around the world may be in similar danger of losing everything and just don't know it yet.

    Yeah, I have to wonder too. All that money, all that hardware, all that redundancy. Oh crap, here comes a power outage and *poof* all the data goes bye-bye.

    Personally, if I was Justin I would've gotten his servers out of NAC years ago. This isn't the first time they had power issues like this, it was only a matter of time until a disaster like this happened. How NAC hasn't been sued into the ground is a wonder. Data centers absolutely should not EVER have a massive power outage like this.

    I have my web site hosted on a server located at a data center in Dallas, TX. Never had a power issue like this in over three years! If I remember correctly, the shared server I have my site on has dual power supplies with dual power feeds from two different power utilities.

    Heh...Interesting. I certainly recognize a few names around here. (I've actually been a member here since 2006!) Where have I been?
    As some of you know, I'm on BBR every day as well. And like some others, the more I read about the problems Justin is having, the more it sounds like a disaster.
    I'm wondering myself at this point if all of the data will ever be recovered.
    And man, we're talking a LOT of data here. Yikes! :eek:

    I hope that Justin will be able to get things working again and recover the lost info.

    PS-1
    A belated Happy Birthday for Justin's son :D

    PS-2
    For years folks have been posting on the mutual boards in case the other one was temporarily down (at the Wilders board when DSLR/BBR was down, and vice versa). I thank the owners of the respective boards for allowing that!
