Brief outage Tuesday morning

Post by richard@imutual » Mon Nov 07, 2016 3:54 pm

Following a disk failure on our server at the weekend, we need to arrange for a replacement disk. This will take place between 8am and 9am tomorrow (Tuesday) and as a result the website will be unavailable for about 20 minutes, Hope you can survive that long without us :|

Not sure, some people may need to reorganize their entire schedules....... :shifty:

Hardware in general today is very reliable, however these things do happen from time-to-time.

A professional should be done and dusted in 20 minutes.

Can we please ensure the disk is professionally destroyed to protect our data?

Or you could do what we used to do and smash the drives up with a 3kg hammer and then put the various pieces and glass-like dust into several different bins.
