Further Updates

Thank you for all your patience, its really appreciated. Our new disk array should be back up, and we will slowly restore services after the July 4th break. I don't want to rush anything since its just going to make it harder to fix if something goes wrong.

I want to make sure everyone knows we have multiple goals when addressing the current problems. While we try to maximize our uptime, we are also concurrently rebuilding our current system. At the beginning of summer, we did send a downtime announcement that spanned the whole summer. At some point we may decide the current system is not worth salvaging, and focus our efforts on the rebuild.

Furthermore, we will shortly attempt to rebuild our core servers, which will take down our entire system. We will try our best to build ad hoc login servers, but anticipate more downtime in July.
