I see from the news posting on the home page:


"Problems with a server disk
Sept 2, 2009
We are experiencing some problems with one of the server disk. We might shut down the server for small periods of time to fix the problems. "

Is it possible to get a bit more information. Are the small periods anticipated to be hours (it has been a solid few hours already) or days? Just wondering.

The disk had hardware errors. It has been fixed but for safety we decided to substitute the disk. It's now being copied on a new one which is taking a while.
In a couple of hours the system should be on again.

Hopefully, it should get back to normality.
