Everything2.com experienced some hardware failure on Saturday April 5, 2003. Our primary webserver, spectre, went offline and the site was down for several hours. Unfortunately, while this happened I was out enjoying my saturday afternoon with my girlfriend and a pitcher of margarita.
Everything2 is now running off of willowisp, our backup and development webserver, but some other services have been affected, including:
Also, we will probably be running at diminished capacity until we either get spectre up and running or come up with a solution using less hardware. This means pageload times will be slower, which I am very sorry for -- but we are aware of the problem and are working on it.
Thank you for your patience.
