    I just got back from the data center where the servers are at (I needed to replace a failed hard drive). The raid mirror for that server is currently replicating itself to that drive, and sometime after it's done (not sure how long it will take), I'm going to take the forum down for 10-15 minutes to upgrade MySQL for the database server cluster. I'm also do a hard reset of all the slave database servers (more or less means that I need to copy about 20GB worth of databases to a bunch of different machines [should take about 5 minutes over gigabit ethernet]).

    This hopefully will make everyone's private messages show up that are missing from some database issues a few days ago.

    No, hasn't happened yet. The failed drive is still in the process of being rebuilt. So hopefully sometime Sunday.
