Message Board Problems

Message Board Down

Regular visitors to the message board will notice that it's been down for the past couple of days. Don't worry, Delphi hasn't closed down or anything, they're just having a hardware problem. This is an email I received from one of their tech people:


Our platform provider, Prospero Technologies, experienced a hardware failure shortly after noon on Monday, affecting a sizable portion of our forums. Their technical and operations staffs, and staff from the hardware vendor, have been working around the clock since then to restore the affected services. One of the things being done is moving forum data from the affected hardware to other servers that are still functioning. It is a slow process because the moved data must be synchronized with the existing data or the whole thing 'breaks.' They expect to get 5000 forums moved today, and will continue until all the forums have been restored.
