    The server the members site is on had a bad hard drive and is being restored. Fortunately I have complete backups at LiquidWeb so I shouldn't lose any data. The tech guy is telling another 3 hours (approximately) before it's fully restored. They are just copying the backup to the new C:\ drive at the moment. Just have to wait for it to finish copying...

    Server is restored. Holy cow that took a long time. Over 14 hours. I'm looking into a storm server at liquidweb, which combines a dedicated server with cloud features. If anyone has any experience with them, I'd be interested in hearing their experience. I'm trying to get things so they are stable, backed up and easily restored if needed. Currently I have it all except the easily restored. At least it was restorable. :)
