Power Outage: Nearly All Systems are Running Again

October 11th, 2008 by

Our admins and developers – in Nuernberg, Provo and from home offices – worked hard today to get all openSUSE services up and running again.  Thanks a lot to all of them!

Nearly all services are be up and running again.  The only exceptions are the services features and ideas, these will be restarted latest by Monday.

    your service is exceptional and when I consider that you are supporting an Open Source product, offered free of charge, then I know what it is that I appreciate about the Open Source movement.

    Keep up the good work SuSE and may you go from strength to strength.

    Thank you – for your hard work and trying to do the impossible in a very short time. I really understand what you go through to put resources back online. I will just summarise what you all went through!
    Crawling round in a office, often without air-conditioning running, trying to recover servers, fixing any hardware errors or damage, with a screwdriver in one hard, new hardware part in the other to replace any that were fried, finding any backup tapes, hungry, hot and tired; working against a malevolent clock all night and fronting up for work as usual only to find the rest of the world slept well as you toiled, ambivalent to how much we all rely on data systems.

  15. I’m going to stick to the mirrors — they are faster, and more reliable. Keep up the good work, Novell and OpenSUSE team!
