Cacheboy downtime - hardware failures


I've had both backend servers fail today. One is throwing undervolt errors on one PSU line and is having disk issues (most likely related to an undervoltage); the other is just crashed.

I'm waiting for remote hands to prod the other box into life.

This is why I'd like some more donated equipment and hosting - I can make things much more fault tolerant. Hint hint.


  1. Bugger, wish I had anything to donate! Really really interesting talk at SAGE-WA the other night. Plenty of food for thought.

  2. Hey man... I ran into your site downloading the latest vlc media player. ... wish I could donate too. You might have some luck checking this site out.. (Business equipment donation)

    Chin up!
