Welcome Back to Head-Fi.org. I'm Sorry About the Extended Outage - Page 15

Thank you for all your hard work Jude. I never realized how essential Head-Fi was in my daily life.

Id like to express my thanks to everyone that helped rebuild the forum.

I know firsthand how excruciating it is to toil while the downtime clock keeps ticking. The first thing to go out of the window is the ability to think critically and examine alternatives to the most obvious approach. You should take a well-earned vacation to get it back.

From your description, it looks like you were using a NetApp cluster configuration (which is already way better than most online communities have) and something went bad. I don't know if you're still willing to trust them after their ordeal, but setting up some sort of disaster recovery system would seem like a priority, either SnapMirror or rsync to a different system (I would recommend a server running Solaris 10 with ZFS, or the NexentaStor distribution of OpenSolaris). Obviously, the extra hardware has a cost, but I am sure the Head-Fi community will be responsive if you run a "belt-and-suspender security fund drive".

Wow, amazing how much work it took! Thanks and congratulations on getting this much back up.

I recently started backing up to 4 different drives on a rotating basis, one of which goes in the fire safe. Maybe we should all pitch in for additional storage?

I think the worst loss to me, a bookmark packrat, is the change in URLs. At least I kept the titles of posts in my bookmarks, so I can do a searh for an old post at the new location. My audio and acoustics bookmarks (to all sites) total 16,000.

Is there any way to have the old links translated to new? A script?
