The site was down for a long time today due to a disk crash. Apologies if you couldn't get you GPWiki fix.

Ironically, I'm building a new server, but it's not ready yet. Thought I'd have to press it into service sooner than I expected. :eek

Good thing you had backups. You did have backups right? :P http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/08/10

What brand of disk was it?

Yes, I have backups, but only a monthly data grab and it lives on the server till I get around to snagging it to my home machine.

Now, I'm looking at pushing a daily backup of everything to Google Drive.

The server is a VPS, so the disk is a virtual one. The problem was down to disk/data corruption, no idea what caused it but I couldn't boot the box until I'd run fsck and cleared a bunch of broken clusters and references.
