Crazyguyonabike server down

This is just a quick note to let people know what's going on with crazyguyonabike. It appears that one or more hard drives are failing. No data has been lost to my knowledge, but I woke up this morning to an unresponsive server. After a reboot, the RAID controller has rebuilt one drive and is now rebuilding another. I'm still waiting for word from the hosting company as to how long this will take to replace. In the meantime I have set up a twitter account to post updates. You can find me at:

Although I usually see no use for twitter, this seems to be one type of situation that it was designed for - i.e. "what's happening now". So that's where I'll post my updates - I'm just posting this here to let the touring community know where to find me when the server is down.

For obvious reasons I do not want to have the webserver up while all this is going on - even if the server is technically "up" at the moment, it obviously is in a fragile state, so better to not have any updates happening until the problem has been resolved.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
