Neopoet is back online!

At approximately 7:30 am on May 8, 2013 in New York City (during a very heavy rainstorm), our datacenter provider, Galaxy Visions, suffered a brief power outage. Unfortunately, during this outage, their UPS battery system, which was supposed to bridge the gap between the outage and the time the generators went online, failed due to a defective battery, and some servers lost power (and obviously, ours was one of those that were affected). Our server normally operates 24x7, and some times during a reboot (which is very occasional in the lifetime of a server - typically we can go a year between reboots) there is an issue coming back online. We resolved this issue just now, around 6:00 pm today, and Neopoet is back online.

In the coming weeks, we will schedule downtime for the server so that we can ensure that the server reboots properly if we were to lose power again.


Good work on overcoming the tech problems...............stan

These things are usually my fault.

it was not due to my free verses
else all wouldv'e by now showered curses
but i had lips purses
where all my work had gone to...
I looked at all sources


Thank you so very much for your energy in sorting out the problems.
I think it will go for everyone on Neopoet that your work for the site here is tops..
As Wesley is behaving strangely, I think a note especially for him, confirming that we will not put any blame in his direction would be really tops.,
