Midgard- and DownMOOers take note

Ok, so, Vodopan is hosed royally. I'm guessing some kind of hardware fault, probably processor- and heat-related. Kernel (2.4 on the drive, 2.2 and 2.4 on floppies) panics before even getting to the file system accessing stage. No good.

I pulled the drive, and was eventually able to access it on oort. It's a reiserfs filesystem, and oort is running 2.2, so I had to compile a 2.4 to be able to read it, but the moo databases are there and are safe. I pulled a full backup off to rigel just to be absolutely sure. So nothing should be lost.

But, I don't know what I'm going to do about hosting them. I think I've got another P2 sitting around, I can try tossing that into vode and seeing if the problem goes away. I can try running the moos on oort. Both of these will take time. I'm going to try doing it tomorrow in between other errands I have to run. I hope I can get them up by tomorrow evening, but can make no promises.

If the people running Down want to move to a new host, let me know and I can package up the files for you. Else, it'll be up when Mid's up.
