It’s been a troubling day. One of our two most gigantic hard drives on the server failed, and we’ve been working all day with technicians to bring it back. It will be up in tie but the waiting is tedious. Meanwhile, the store and other features are shut down. Truly, we are sorry for this, but it reinforces the next goal of moving entirely to the cloud, not just for user interface purposes but also for fundamental server functioning itself. The physical world is forever decaying, especially given the extreme traffic and use we’ve been undergoing for about 45 days. We’ll be back to normal functioning by this evening certainly.
Added: It turns out not to be a hardware failure but a network failure from the host itself. Sadly, this is something that no one can prevent. There is nothing we could do on our end. And of course no host is perfect, no technician omniscient. The only good that comes from a flaky day like this is that we were able to lean on our provider to provide us a massive upgrade in several areas, and at no charge. Here’s to the future!
