    Just a quick word to apologize for the downtime over the past 1-2 days. There is unfortunately a recurring hardware failure on the server (every 6 months or so) which causes the power supply to fail, which means we're down until the hosting company sends someone to manually restart the machine. Once again the failure occurred on a week-end which further delayed the restoration of service. Note: this thread will be removed from homepage in the next few hours.

    It's okay. I forgive you. This time. Next time, well, next time, you'll see. I'll patiently wait again. Just you wait and see.

    I was wondering why the site was down. I was afraid that some assholes had taken it down for copyright or something.

    of course the hosting company has such equipment, datacenter-wide
    but this is an isolated problem on our particular server.

    Good to have it back, it is surprising how much I visit this place in my downtime. Are we missing a few threads as http://gbatemp.net/threads/gbachef-ripoff-chemicals-in-our-food-omgwtfbbq.360530/ does not seem to exist any more? https://webcache.googleusercontent....emicals+in+our+food,+OMGWTFBBQ.&hl=en&ct=clnk for the cached version.

    ,
    Either way good to be back , it was fairly tricky to find out what had happened and even more so to find the irc info without the site being up... well specifically the port number. I would be asking for more security i guess.

    That topic is from the still issue plagued off topic forum.

    Whew, so glad to see GBATemp back online. The internet felt so boring without checking GBAT lately. I mean, shoot me, but I really enjoy stalking this site.
