On Friday morning Moo Canada started exhibiting some serious problems. On Friday evening Cecil wrote, "fsck has detected vast numbers of bad sectors and has not been able to fix the problems". Basically our server's toast.
Fortunately whiz and I were in the process of building a new server anyway, so the Moo should be back up relatively soon. Unfortunately the old hard drive had started to fail some time earlier, meaning the automatic daily backups are corrupt (files truncated or zero bytes). The last confirmed good backup was a manual one from two months ago.
I'll update this page as we go. Sorry for the downtime.
Update: And Moo Canada is back online. Unfortunately with an old database.
Update: A recent database has been recovered and is now live.
