So, we have some word from the web host. After my investigation, I found that one of our drives had some bad sectors. After unmounting it, the site seems to be running much better. Good news is that it was our backup drive, so none of the site data should be damaged. They will be replacing the drive, but in order to do so, they will need to power down our server to swap out the drive.

We have this planned for Wednesday during the day. Most of you will probably be at work or school, so there shouldn't be many that this will affect. We will be making solid backups ahead of time, just in case. Smiley

So, to sum it up, site is having planned downtime to resolve a hardware issue that should help our performance once it is resolved. It'll be down Wednesday during the day and hopefully back up by that night. I don't have a time as of right now, but we'll redirect somewhere. Smiley

Go ahead, kick it over to channel 4 for a little bit on Wednesday, but be sure to bring it back over to channel 3 soon!

Awesome job, Adam!
Just had one of my servers at work slow way down. Turns out it was the same thing a disk had gone bad. 
Great job, guys.  This means I won't be able to lurk while at work, but it's all good (in the long run).
Let's hope this fixes things.
Wait what am I supposed to do while at work if RFG is down?
@Tynstar: Oh, I don't know, maybe actually... DO WORK, like what you're getting paid to do? Let's be productive for once, hmmm?

Anyhoo, I'm happy to see things are getting back on track. Big kudos to all those putting in the effort to resolve all the site issues.
@Tynstar:Play something on your Surface Pro or maybe play something on your phone?
@Shadow Kisuragi - I have been playing Age of Empires Online

@Zagnorch - I have been very productive. Do you know how many images I have uploaded of the last few months?
@Tynstar: Wait, you actually do that stuff at work, and not on your own time?

Looks like I'll be getting in touch with your employer's HR department.

BTW they wouldn't happen to be hiring, would they? Wink
I scan at home upload for the most part at work.
Glad to hear everything is moving forward. I can read some posts, update the collection, and hopefully submit some new stuff for the database. I don't know what I would do without rfgeneration. Smiley
