Thanks for the kind words. I haven't had any time to check anything outside the staff sections until now. I'll shine some light on things for the curious. We suffered some file system damage that killed the kernel and left us with an un-bootable server and un-mountable partition. It was irreparable, so a full rebuild was necessary. Naturally, the incident coincided with difficult times in real life and I was unavailable for awhile to make RHDN a priority. When I got things running again I wrote up a big status report to post, and as luck would have it I lost power before I finished! After that I figured I would just use my limited time to concentrate on fixing things rather than update about fixing things and not actually be actively fixing them! Fun times.
I'll confirm a few things:
1. The site should now be fully restored.
2. The database and file backup was in fact from March 11th. Items from the day or two after that are lost. If you act fast, Google cache still has snapshots of a few until they re-crawl the site.
There's still a number of performance tweaking, permissions, and configuration items to do yet, but that should not affect the site much. Don't be alarmed if there are minor bits of downtime, they will be short this time! I've used this opportunity to make some changes so we can soon move to HTTPS, provide HTTP/2 connections, and other fun technologies on our way to a more modern infrastructure. Hopefully, after that we'll be able to start looking at some of the aged aspects of the site itself for improvement. RHDN will be sticking around for awhile longer yet. It is not yet our time!
