Anyone know the cause of this problem?
Not paying the bills?
Oh, that sucks. That place rules big time.
It is down from time to time, try again later today.
Actually, yes it is.
It happens sometimes. It happened a lot while I was rebuilding my show archive from their FTP site.
I can't seem to find the current shows on there anymore. Were they taken down?
Too bad OApedia is down too.
A mirror is still up:
The main site is down, but I'm sure the mirrors that the front page links to are still there.
Unfortunately, I'm sad to report that there was a massive fire this morning in the apartment adjacent to the office where the main Dell server is located. Until a cause of the fire can be determined and/or the fire marshall deems it safe to , the ultilities will remain shut off (i.e electricity). I'm not sure what condition the server is in but I'm praying its fine as just purchased it several months ago!
Luckily, the 3 of the 4 mirror sites are still online and have an exact replica of the collection which are available by visiting the following:
I'm supposed to survey the damage tommorow and hopefully bring the Dell server back online... If not I will point the main site somewhere else temporarily...
If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me (mail server is up) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Vinny, that SUCKS! I hope you get things back up and running soon. I know you work hard on that site...Good luck with everything.
Does this site have the stuff that OAVirus has? Because i dont want to go to that site anymore.(i dont want the FBI knocking at my door)
Lil' bit, lil' bit. There are some bits missing, but also more XM bits.
Hope everything works out.
Wow that really sucks :icon_mad:
... hope everything works out okay
Thanks for the concern! From what I was told by the owner, the closet where the server is located wasn't effected and that part of the building should be fine... Hopefully, I'll be able to go in tommorow to assess the damage... I'll keep you all posted...
Thanks. Good luck!
Im also glad to hear that everything is okay. I'd been kinda concerned since the latest court rulings regarding internet media. I thought it may had been gone for good. So glad it isnt.
Good luck with it, Vinny. and thanks for the site. Its great.
Well I had a chance to inspect the Dell server which hosts the main site today and luckly it survived. Despite the fact that it is covered with soot and ash inside and out, it still works! However, some replacement parts are going to be needed not to mention I have to find a temporary new home for it which may take several days to several weeks... Although, in the meantime, I've brought up a condensed version of the site on one of the mirrors for people to visit while I get the Dell server running again.
www.spreadtheonavirus.com is here to stay and serve you!
also before this even happened I notice that the classic XM stream no longer worked. Will you eventually put that back up and get it working again?
You rule man.
I just started listening to the boys a few months ago and its great to hear the backgrounds of all the inside jokes.
