    I hear ya, unfortunately they've got the mid-range server market cornered. All you can do in my price range is roll the dice and hope your server wasn't assembled on monday! The last 2 dells we had were pretty reliable and all of our previous outages were network and 1 hard drive failure. Fingers crossed this one does ok..

    No, the emergency chatroom is always just an open java chat.

    They may command the market, but there are other options. Sun even offers some nice mid-range Opteron servers. You at least buy machines with ECC memory, right?

    I've personally seen data corruption with MySQL and have heard it from others too. Doesn't seem terribly robust. I guess you get what you pay for (which in the case of MySQL, is quite a bit

    The webmail database for the university I work for failed on me one time and was corrupted beyond repair. Along with our nightly backups, we also store all update logging on a separate log server (a year's worth of logs). When our database failed, we recovered the backup from the night before and applied all updates right up until the time of the corruption.


    By the way, great work!

    Sterling work. Anyone wondering whether to continue to subscribe should have found this focussed their attention as they say, when they had to manage for about 36 hours without APUG. So if we all realise its value even more than before then some good may have come out of it.

    By the way can I take it that it is all back to normal in terms of running speed etc. The reason I ask is that I have already lost one reply when attempting to send to Arigram and the response rate has gone back to the very slow rate it was at before the changeover.

    It is certainly not back to what it was but this may be coincidentally my ISP provider.

    Thanks
