Unexected downtime. (11.00 UTC) The server crashed again, this time for good. The motherboard did a suicidal action and took the CPU with it down.
Until it is possible to install a replacement motherboard and CPU the server will be running in degraded-mode meaning that no sessions will be rendered and no access will be available to the result and workunit database (see the more technical details for a reason why). Forums and the remaining website should be unaffected and no data was lost during this incident.
Updates on service availability will be posted here when the status changes. Currently mail and CVS is offline along with the longterm storage array. A fundraising for the new server components has been created. The exact cost is still to be determined. Keep tuned for updates.
