    Server Hard Drive Failure!

    You may be wondering why TGC has been down more than up the last couple of days.

    The server that hosts this site had a hard drive failure Friday night. The server is located in Texas and the folks there have been working on it ever since. They replaced the drive but something else is apparently wrong. They are still trying to isolate the problem and may need to restart the server several times which takes a lot longer than a desktop. During the restarts, TGC will be down again.

    Sorry..... not anything I can do about the situation from Tennessee.

    Yeah, they are. But I am just glad there is someone working on it that know a lot more about it than I do. They have been very good at responding to my sometimes stupid questions and helping me out, so I guess I will give them time to work through this.

    They just sent me an email telling me that "the server node that houses your site is currently up, running and stable. However the RAID (hard drive array) health is less than optimal...We will be scheduling another window in the very near future to perform another round of maintenance. This maintenance should be seamless with no projected downtime ... however during the process you may notice sluggish responses."

    So there you have it. It is fixed but not quite fixed. Or is it, it is not quite fixed but it is fixed?
