r1db.com down for anybody else?

It's down for me and I am wondering if anybody has any further information. I just paid for 1,000 credits, so I hope they didn't go belly up or end up in a law suit or something. I certainly hope that it's just regular system maintenance or something simple. It's been down for me like for about 7 hours now.

Lemmy: They have standards - they just don't go to a great deal of effort to enforce them. Sometimes I get really angry at what I end up downloading. All artwork is supposed to be 300 dpi, right?! Well, I downloaded a cover a while back that was 72 dpi and was such a piece of crap that I think the reviewer must have been asleep when he/she approved it.

Anyway, I usually love them and I hope that they come back soon.

Re: r1db.com down for anybody else?

Okay, here's the message one gets right now when trying to access the site.

We had a major hardware failure as we've attempted to upgrade the server that hosts r1db.com. Unfortuntaly (sic) while we attempt to recover it, there will not be any access to it. Your information is safe, we dont (sic) believe we've had any data loss, and we do have backups. The only problem should be hardware. This may require us purchasing a new server.

If you have access to servers, or hardware and want to donate, please email me: [email protected]

If you want to donate to the server hardware fund, please do so by paypaling me here, and we'll be sure we upgrade your account when we get it restored: [email protected].

in the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience and we're working to recover it as quickly as possible.

Had access this morning and this afternoon I don't. Is this a planned "migration" they're having issues with, anyone know?
