Are there any plans to offer an explanation for the blackout?
It appears that the server or vps that mysql was running on ran out of diskspace. Eric solved it for now but few of the current staff have access to that server. I had access at one point but someone either removed my user account or removed my key. Is thorpe or daniel0 still active? If I am not mistaken daniel was the one that setup the irc server and he would probably be the best one to contact regarding that problem.
