Me in the sun

Goathack is dead

One of the LiveJournal administrators (evan) posted this in goathack:
The machine that ran Goathack mysteriously won't turn on. This means that your data is safe and recoverable (and the machine is probably also repairable), but also that goathack will be down for a while.

This means that development on 1.4.8.1 and 1.4.9 has been stalled indefinately. I've asked if someone can send me a tarball of our files from the hard disk in that machine, but if that's not possible, then we're going to have to go back to an old version. Luckily, I have another LiveJournal server that could be used for testing, so all is not lost, and development should resume in the next few days, although this is likely to delay the T-Mobile fix that we were going to release this weekend.

Sorry people.
