Welcome back Oasies!

It's not clear as yet how well Oasis has been restored. It certainly has had one very long week to rest!!!

Hopefully Jeff will duck in soon (if he's survived Sandy) and update us all on the status.

Anyway... get to work on all those neglected Journals that you've been keeping in abeyance. :)

Update:

Many in NYC are currently without power. It's quite likely that this is the situation facing Jeff... dunno!

Yup...

We should be back up and running. The site did not move to a new server or anything, though, so the database seems to get itself into a kerfuffle every few months on this one. I'm hoping adrian can move us soon. We already have the new server lined up. I even have my log in information. So, hopefully our next downtime is the move... but I can let you know about that downtime in advance.

As for the hurricane, I'm not near the water, so no flooding here. I got through pretty easy: power stayed on, Internet stayed on, just a lot of rain and wind in an old brick brownstone, which is pretty easy. I watched half of the second season of Boss and went to bed. Not too shabby.

I'm not near the ocean,

but we lost power as of 4:10 p.m. yesterday. We were lucky as far as, tree damage goes. I lost the top of a Maple tree, which landed in front of my shed, no harm done. One of my neighbors lost two huge pine trees, narrowly missing a pick-up truck and second larger one was blown over in a wooded area. The tree was so tall it's head fell on the roof of a garage on the next street over, but no damage to his roof or boat.
However, we still don't have power due to a tree taking out a transmission line. So, my only opportunity to go online may be at work in the near future.

Oasis "seems" to remain a bit unstable...

It was inaccessible again for about 30 minutes between 2110 and 2140UTC.

Let's hope it was an intentional shutdown for tweaking by personnel at the server... but that's nothing more than a guess! :(

Well...

There's a reason the unstable message wasn't removed from the front page. The site is a bit unstable until we move to the new server, and unfortunately, when that happens isn't in my power.

My guess is the site goes down for periods here and there normally, you just happened to notice this one. I'd guess it is unrelated to the recent reboot, fr better or worse.

I'm glad Oasis is back!

My Mom was able to get one of the last flights out of NYC, I'm not sure what she would have done if she wasn't able to leave?

Well...

A vast majority of NYC is fine and not having problems, so probably nothing. Would just be crashing somewhere waiting to get out.
