Downtime, groups and assets

Since someone thought it a good idea to mess with critical infrastructure from a remote location without proper precautions or access to the datacenter, soup was offline for a few days around this last weekend. We're sorry about that.

While some of the fallout has compromised a few internal services, the user facing portion has now been fixed, and lo and behold, even improved, by re-activating three servers that were left inactive after the last cable management party at the datacenter.

Thanks to the guys at Nessus, who, as always, responded timely and professionally to our requests for assistance! If you're in need for your own domain name, they have the most comprehensive product in this area called Easyname - be sure to check it out.

In other news, you may now be able to open the group "find and create" page again due to the new found capacity allowing us to extend the maximum connection time. The page will still take ages to load (there's a lot of info being fetched from the database and processed for it, so we'll see how that goes), but it should eventually show up (probably better chances during the day than the evening) and allow you to create new groups. Isn't that something! edit: No, it's not, groups still can't be created. This seems to be a bug in the software that just wasn't discovered since the group page never loaded... m(

Finally, some images went missing when our amazon contract ran out and nobody removed an asset restauration script that then proceeded to overwrite perfectly good images with zero byte files. There shouldn't be too many affected, but if you find any, just re-upload them from their original source. If they are older ones, they should still be around on backups and may turn up within the next weeks. If it's something you truly, truly can't live without and can't get back from other sources, leave a comment to this post with a link, and I'll see what I can do.
