    BF went down from 12pm->4pm PST 6/24.

    there was some hardware problem with the BF server. a new machine was swapped in and there should be one more scheduled down time to replace a disk and BF should be back to normal... sorry about that...

    Ah so that's what it was, I think another badminton UK based site is also down, I just thought you were both using the football as cover to get some upgrades etc done ;)

    Kwun you scared the crap out of me!

    I logged off around 12 midnight my time, tried to get on at 7 am my time from work (I don't sleep much) and down, for two whole hours! *sob*

    All my other servers that I usually check were working, but how was I supposed to survive a whole work day without BC/BF?

    That was really scary.....I tried every single hour, but no luck........

    Now it's 7: 26 PM, and everything is back ! :)


    Kwun, since there will be another scheduled downtime for the hardware stuff, do you know when that will be? (Just to ease our minds) :) :p
