The AW server had a hard disk controller failure a couple days ago. This required a replacement and remounting the system operating files. Fortunately the AW database and associated files to run the website were not impacted. We dodged a bullet, the latest backup files weren't available and fortunately were not needed.

That's about it, glad the server is back up and running. For those that aren't aware, there is a Facebook Air Warriors page, and I update server status there when the site is down for extended periods like this.

Nice work John! The sysadmin job is often a thankless one.

A good segway - who or what funds tbe server/hosting/storage involed with AW? Its clearly moved beyond a server sitting under a desk somewhere.

You two need to get a room...to play with all your toys.
Toys? Those aren't toys...those are "precision aircraft action models" of the almighty TH-57B and C respectively...constructed in the PI from recycled furniture. Do not call them toys. :D
