    Thanks to those that worked tirelessly and dang near around the clock to get Stratics up and running again.

    I believe it was a combination of things! But I believe the main problem was a hard disk ....I am sure we will have a post when its all fixed (they are still working on a lot of things as we speak) so it may be a while before anyone has time to make a official statement!

    Rumor is that one of the staff, not mentioning any names here KYLIE(!!!!), got the hampsters drunk and they fell off the wheel.

    I see someone oiled the hamster wheel as well. Pages are certainly loading much faster now. :)

    Is it ever possible for UO or Stratics to go down without people mentioning hamsters and hamster wheels? You just know its coming but cringeworthy nonetheless.

    Not sure it's Stratics approved, but I reckon they can remove it if not :D



    Was bored and this was the result....


    ‘Twas the night before Christmas and Stratics didn’t work,
    Nobody could make it to the boards, not even to lurk.

    The trolls kept refreshing hoping it would load,
    Getting upset because they were unable to goad.

    Wanting to *****, moan, fuss, fight or gripe,
    Desiring to flame, attack and constantly snipe.

    While those who moderate each and every spat,
    Sat around and waited while talking in chat.

    When the word came down it rolled like thunder,
    The hardware is toast, it’s a total freaking blunder.

    Shaking our heads, we knew the real deal.
    Damn Hampsters were drunk and fell off the wheel.

    That being the case I am out of here for the night.
    Merry Christmas to you all, and don’t let Kelmo bite.

    *twitches* Thank goodness! It was bad enough not being able to get in-game for the past few days (I'm away from home and only have access to a Mac laptop for the time being), but with Stratics down, I was beginning to get an idea of what *withdrawal* must feel like! Welcome back Stratics and staff! :)

    Running a large website is always fun. I'm sure the readers appreciate the hardwork done over a holiday to get this place back up. Kudo's and Happy Holidays.

    I have learned a lot about RAID the last few days other than a can of insecticide :scholar:

    I've also learned RAID 6 is not fail safe :)

    We are, er wait. We? Ha! Umm, THEY are still working on the main portals including uostratics information but all should be well by the end of today.

    Where's the 'standing ovation' emoticon when you need it.
    That was simply Brilliant. Thank you for sharing that with us. I'm seriously thinking about printing it & pinning it to the wall :)

    Well, NO RAID is fail safe. RAID is Redundant. RAID 6 allows for two drives to fail though and the array will continue to function.

    It's all about how critical your uptime is vs. cost. If cost were no object RAID 60 would be my preference.

    I'm glad the site is back up, but it looks like we lost a few threads/posts.

    Now I have to remember what I said 3 days ago and repost it...
