Subject: Linux Australia Server.
For those of you wondering where your sites etc have gone.
The server suffered a total disk failure of a brand new 9 gig drive. This
had the / and /home paritions on it. The drive was less than 24 hours old.
There was no warning of failure, I rebooted the machine and the new drive
completely failed to power up. This gives me some hope that the problem
is electrical, and not physical.
I am running around furiously trying to find an identical drive, so I can
try changing the logic board and see if I can get our drive going again.
I will keep the list informed.
