Project was down today between 18:00 and 21:30 EEST (that's from 15:00 UTC/7:00 PST to 18:30 UTC/11:30 PST) for about 3 and half hours while the previously failing disk was swapped with a backup disk and data was copied over. Now the project is running from a disk that's not showing signs of collapsing due to read errors. The backup disk is as old as the failed disk but hasn't had that much use so it should last until the project server is migrated to a new server with SSD disks later this year.

This happened a bit unannounced as I took advantage of the D.net keymaster problems that seems to slow down our work generation for some reason. That's also the why we run out of work before the maintenance and why we still don't have full work buffers. Hopefully that will fix itself once the keymaster is back in action. In any case, our local proxy will eventually run out of work unless the keymaster will be resurrected.

For more information about the keymaster failure, please read http://blogs.distributed.net/2015/07/10/04/28/bovine/. Thanks and happy crunching once the dust settles!
