After just over a week of web site downtime, my site is at last back up, all data restored! All this due to some corruption of the RAID-5 array when I moved the four drives from the Athlon 700MHz machine to a new Athlon 2600+ machine. For a bit, I was worried that I'd lost some of my data, including some of these web site postings. Fortune has smiled on me, and so far, all my data appears intact, though it has been a rough week trying to figure out ways to recover it.
Next, I need to get my mail server running again. Once that's done, I then need to figure out where I'm gonna stash the new server box. Right now it's sitting out in the middle of my living room amidst the clutter of torn-apart-computers (yes, I've had several open, guts strewn across the room) and shipping packaging. I wish I had a good server closet.
