Hi All,

It appears one of the main www servers (hideki) had a drive failure today and is thus non-operational.

I have requested a new drive to be put in the machine and it be reloaded. No data will be lost, since it's just a www server anyway.

However, any links directly to hideki.modthesims2.com will not work. I have removed hideki from the main www and forums pools, but it may take up to 24 hours for the DNS to fully propogate. So you might see blank pages / server timeouts / site cannot be found issues for a few days.

This will mean that the existing www servers will be overloaded, and thus a lot slower than usual. Please be patient

I will update this thread with more information when I get it - usually the hosting company are fairly quick with building machines, so hopefully everything will be sorted out by the end of the week.

At first, I was having MAJOR withdrawals because I click around on MTS2 EVERY time I pass my computer. Then, I decided to go do something "purely" physical (like jog up and down the stadium styled steps at the local clinic). Trying to decide (as I rub my aching back) if this is a blessing in disguise from time to time!

I figured as much because every other site works. Good to know this though! Thanks for the info.

I wondered why the site kept timing out. I thought maybe we were getting extra traffic somehow. Thanks for letting us know.

Okay Hideki is now back online - hopefully it'll have minimal teething issues.

I've re-inserted it back into the pool, but it may take up to 24 hours for it to propogate fully.
