All disk are complete crap! Two years ago was a whole different story. That was what a friend (who knows his things very well) told me. After six mounts they are all dead, Which reminds me that i have to by second one and build raid1 also:) Probably web server crash a day ago was caused by that also...Just sharing thoughts...Thank you very much for your immediate and adequate actions!

Yes. I'm starting to hate disks. Second time since I started BitMinter that a disk dies.

Hopefully the new disk will go in tomorrow. Hoping for something like a 5 minute downtime. Until then, let's mint some coins. Smiley

Hey Doc,

Thanks for the heads up.  I know backup pool functionality has been on your list for a while, but I was wondering if it would also be possible to add in solo mining as a backup option for if the pool goes down.

Certainly. That's also coming. Smiley

Technically it's the same thing. You just have to set 127.0.0.1:8332 as a backup server with a local bitcoind running as a server.

Yep, I wrote on twitter that the server is going on but forgot to write it here.

It is indeed the announced downtime to replace a hard drive. Hope the server comes back to life soon. *tap foot*

Hehe. 5 minutes = how long I thought changing a disk on a server takes.

Almost 1 hour and counting = how long it actually takes? Sad

Nice customer support by Hetzner.

Yesterday I made an appointment to get the disk replaced at 18:00 CEST and sent them all info they need. They confirmed.

Today I send emails and get no reply. On phone is endless waiting with music. Finally I get an email at 19:55 saying it was not possible to change the disk at the appointed time. Please make a new appointment.

Sorry, guys, I try to always keep the pool up, but this was out of my control.

Trying to now get the damn server back up again. All this downtime for nothing. Sad

I announced it the day before here and on twitter, and wrote same places when it went down (a few minutes late here, though).

I know 1 day notice isn't long, but I don't like running a degraded raid-1 array longer than necessary.

I also thought changing a disk is quick. I know it is when I do it myself.

so, will it automatically connect when everything is up? I guess at times like this its good to have a backup, lol...

Thanks. Yeah, the website is up and the mining pool backend will be up in a second (bitcoind being slow to start up).

Hum, I just had a drive failure last week, they replaced it with a drive with 63 reallocated sectors and it failed yesterday. Today they removed the remaining good drive, leaving the faulty one in place !
I was quite satisfied until last week: something changed and it's not for the better.

Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

Everything is up and running again as normal.

New appointment to change the disk is 14.09.2012 at 12 CEST. That's friday at 10:00 UTC.

BitMinter will disappear a moment before that and I hope this time will not be gone for so long, and hopefully have a new disk when it boots back up.

Oh. My. God. I'm starting to understand why they are so much cheaper than everyone else.
