    Hi everyone, just a quick word to explain and apologize for the downtime that occured today on all our services. Unfortunately our server went down due to a hardware defect, and it couldn't be restarted even by the hosting company themselves. It's been fixed now and let's hope it won't happen again!
    All services are back up and running, including our chatroom (IRC channel, #gbatemp.net on server irc.gbatemp.net:5190) so feel free to join us for a good time with everyone!

    Also a reminder for all 'tempers out there: there are currently two ongoing competitions.
    [​IMG] The GBAtemp Homebrew Bounty (nearly $5,500 up for grabs for your homebrew projects!)
    [​IMG] The GBAtemp Tutorial Competition, write a tutorial and win one of the 25 prizes

    I noticed dcemu got hacked, and thought maybe the downtime here was related. Good to hear it's wasn't.

    I saw that too. Some Belgian lot. I was panicking (I'm a girl it's allowed) about gbatemp because I heard people saying sony had shut it down.

    I blame monkat.

    I thought it was you guys banning me. But then I realized that being banned would just make the site not load.

    Also, it was down at school so I thought you guys were out to get me. >__>;;

    Then I also realized my home uses a dynamic IP and I think the school does too so that would be pretty hard...

    Still, I'm glad it's back.

    (I blame Rydian)

    I was browsing the forum the moment it stopped working, I missed it all the day long ! [​IMG]

    I'm glad it's finally solved and the server could be booted back online without any data loss. [​IMG]

    You had me worried sick. Why didn't you call and say you'd be out all day? [​IMG]
    Had no idea what the problem was, but all's good now. [​IMG]

    Was also thinking about some kind of hacker attack or DDOS or something. Glad to hear it wasn't!
    What kind of malfunction was it? I mean, did something break physically on the servers or something?

    Wow. I was reading about Anon and how they are hackers, and then when I went to browse here, it was down! So I thought they attacked or something [​IMG]

    But at least it's back [​IMG]

    We need a Twitter/Facebook for downtimes like this.

    I see we already have a Twitter, but it's kinda underused.
