Status Update

A staffer requested that I create a new post for every status update, as it'll be much easier for people using RSS readers to stay informed, so I've taken all the previous status updates and created a new post for each one and will continue doing so in the future.

Our second attempt at repairing the file system failed. Therefore, per the course of action I mentioned in my last status update, we've decided to wipe the disk array clean and rebuild the file system from our primary backup. This should help minimize downtime and get the OCF back to peak performance ASAP.

Once the dust settles, we (the Site Managers) will probably be sending out a more formal email message describing the failure, our response to it, and how we plan on avoiding such failures in the future.

Oh, and I should note that we're currently queuing incoming mail.
