Greetings all,

Today we were informed of the possible threat that the latest Hurricane might pose to our website and possibly an IRC server. To that end our webhosting provider has mentioned that the threat from Rita is quite real and it is very possible we will lose DNS service at the very least, but this has been counteracted by multiple DNS backup servers spread across different networks to help alleviate this problem. However we have been assured that backups are going to be made available offsite incase there is problems with the Hurricane.

This threat isn't necessarily a for sure, going to happen, sort of thing. It is very possible it will miss the datacenter entirely. At current Rita is set to hit the NOC around Saturday Morning to Afternoon. Of course things do change, and as we've seen with Katrina, anything can happen.

We will keep you posted if anything changes.

Fear not for your posts. We have taken steps to back up the servers and protect the data stored on the Nightstar Zoo. With luck, there will be no downtime at all, but if there is, we will have the service back up and running as soon as possible.

Note: This also affects the Troika IRC server, which is hosted in the same datacenter.
