Hardware down, repeat hardware down

If anyone has attempted to access this site in the past few days you may have noticed that it was down and out. The reason for this was that there was a major hardware fault at my hosting provider.

As many of you know I host this site through my user account on servers at my school, Memorial University. Just this past weekend a power problem damaged the hardware where my user account lives and it took some time for the hardware to be repaired and then the data restored from backups. Thankfully the amazing staff with the Computer Science department was able to recover the system, and restore the data too within two hours of the time it failed. Meaning very little – if any – data loss was experienced by users who had their user accounts stored on that server.
