*whew* Good. He's a bit temperamental as well...
and very jumpy.

Yes only my pet magpies were needed for this incident. They ensured I hurried up on the maintenance works so that they could be fed.

Just a quick mention -- the site was off the air for a bit overnight as the VMWare server it resides on did the equivalent of the Windows "Blue screen of death"
This has now been resolved.

Jeez, what did that coffee drinking koala do to you???

I noticed the outage and thought maybe the server was so excited that I joined the forum that it fainted ;) Glad that it was a temporary computer issue and that it's back up!

That koala is a troublemaker. He's been responsible (we think) for most for the outages we've experienced. We usually send him in with Spike, our buff kangaroo for a few rounds, and then he confesses. The coffee is just to get him jittery enough to talk.
Is he going to get away with it?
Spike DOESN'T think so.

Sadly Spike was needed once more.

This time, it wasn't koala's, it was plumbers, who were digging up the street to run a new water pipe for a business across the road.

The also, somehow, dug up all the phone and fibre cables as well. The actual phones are finally back and working again but fixed line Internet is still down.

I've organized an alternative access method so as to bring the site back online. If it isn't up for you yet, it will be within the next few hours as systems update.

Wow, I was afraid the koala came back with reinforcements. Sorry to hear about all of the trouble on your street!

Yes it was a rather interesting chain of events (and still is by the way)
I have (understandably) had several paying clients get most upset at the downtime length so having another form of Internet link for a backup is now an essential.
At least with that I can now have most services back online until the absolute disaster can be fully rectified. I expect that will happen within the next week.

For the duration however, everything except the videos are operational -- the videos do consume quite a bit of bandwidth and being on an 80Mbit LTE connection isn't cheap. As soon as the fibre is back up I'll bring the videos back on live again.

Good grief! FINALLY the site is accessible for me. Can't we I dunno, mirror key portions of the affected sites somewhere else just in case this (painfully likely) happens again? Or is that outside the hosting budget?

I get that it's convenient having er, "in-house" hosting practically in your backyard out there in Australia... but these fustercluck disasters MUST be giving you some serious black eye publicity with your business clients, too. There has just GOT to be a solution to at the very least prevent TOTAL site obliterations on what is truly feeling like EVERY single three weeks or so...
