Pixelation Downtime. Important info!

on: June 03, 2008, 12:22:19 am
We apologize for the downtime.  This seems to have been a much bigger problem than pixelation alone.  The data-center at which pixelation is being hosted suffered an explosion which took out nearly 9,000 servers.

You can read about it here: http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/06/01/1715247

It appears that the majority of the problem has been resolved, but don't be surprised if there are a few bumps along the way.

Hang tight!

-Dan


Update:
There was a period of time where ThePlanet was running our server off a generator.  That generator failed, thus the continued downtime.  They've since bought a new generator that can handle that amount of power needed.  Permanent solution scheduled for this weekend.

UPDATE:
If pixelation is down in the future for whatever reason, you can go here http://wayofthepixel.blogspot.com/ to see if there are news about it.

I read about that explosion on Slashdot right after it happened. Nice to see that you're back though.
For a sec I was almost afraid that you'd moved again. It took me four years to find you after you left pixelation.cjb.net.

hey

Yay, it's finally back ^_^.

I was a bit worried for a while, would have been sad to see it go.

Hah, I thought I might have got banned or something also, and I tried joining through proxy server and found it was still down, hehe.

You would still be able to browse even if you were banned, as far as I know it only stops you from signing in and posting.
Also, we wouldn't ban without a reason!


But whee, it seems it is back.

Good to see it back up. Any estimate on the non-default theme being back? I've got the boring SMF default here.

I figured I'd save thread-space, unless I've missed another thread somewhere else?

Skin is a matter of mia having time. So it could be a bit longer. About the zoom stuff I will hassle Adam asap.
