    Highlighting my username and clicking on "my posts" doesn't work.
    Seems they still have some fixing to do. I thought they might have shut it down to work on security and preventing the spammers from spamming all the time.

    I tried to view a few other forums today to find out what was happening here, Gretsch talk, Strat talk, Squier?
    None of them would load.

    This seems like a good time for the site administrators to create a thread that explains what happened so that you don't get a dozen new threads asking "what happened?"

    But what do I know.

    The whole point of almost all RAID systems is to create redundancy for exactly this type of faulire. If a hard drive fails the system can continue on.

    Otherwise, if you had a RAID system that failed any time a drive failed you would increase the chances of a system failure by how many drives were in it.....One drive would be safer than multiple drives.....which defeats the whole purpose.

    Not only would I suspect they have a RAID system, I owudl also think they would have a duplicate system in place with a failover facility and incremental backups to recover from as required.

    To be down for so long seems odd.
