we is back, y’all

Holy crap, we were gone for a while. Now we’re back. Schweet.

So, you’re probably wondering, what the heck happened? Well here’s the short story:

chuma.org was hosted by my friend, Stan, because he was really nice back when I had no job and no webspace. Well, around the end of the year, the following things happened on top of the other:

  • His server’s auxiliary power supply failed. It powered the RAID array.
  • The RAID data was damaged and had to be rebuilt.
  • One of the RAID drives failed and had to be replaced.
  • His ISP went belly-up with approx. 72 hours notice that they were shutting off all of their services
  • He broke his collar bone.

So that’s why I haven’t been able to get my data until today. Which I did. I just spent a few hours dumping my databases on a Sun box and re-importing them on my Linux box. So chuma.org is now on my box, so if it goes down again, you can directly blame me.
