32 Hours of Posts Lost - July 2019

Recommended Posts

Roughly 32 hours of posts were lost when the RAID 10 array failed in spectacular fashion last night (just before the backup for the day's posts could be completed).

This means that any posts made from about 2:05am on the morning of July 23, 2019 until the site was restored at about 11:05am were lost. New member registrations, PMs, files uploaded, etc. are lost.

We successfully restored the site (all files, the databases, etc.) from the backup made early in the morning on July 23, and ask that you please re-create any posts that you felt were worthwhile that you lost in the 32 hours or so that we no longer have.

I'll be here in this topic to answer any other questions you might have.

Thank you.

Ouch, gotta love the life of IT sometimes. We moved from nightly to a more granular hourly backup, but with our work losing 32 hours of data would result in probably a week or more of people redoing their work while trying to keep up with current work.

Yeah, hourly would, IMO, be massive overkill for a site like TST, but I'm sure I'll review the policies and backup settings.

At the end of the day, I don't know that anyone said anything too important. And 32 hours is a pretty small amount of time, all things considered.

I can certainly say, I did not.

I agree, Vinsk probably didn't.  OTOH, I'm sure I had said many brilliant things that I'll now never remember ..

Sorry for your troubles, Erik.  For a RAID 10 array to have taken a crap it must have been spectacular, and the stuff of nightmares for a guy like me.  As far as backups are concerned, most modern solutions backup at the block-level these days, and will also dedupe the data, which helps reduce both storage requirements and the time that making a backup takes.

Yep to all of that. The backups are to a pretty recent standard and, yes, they're incremental.

I posted the cure for the shanks and it was brilliantly fool-proof and permanent. But I can't remember what I said now. Ah, old age. :-P

Lol! Like when Lodka ( tv show Taxi) is being Alex at the shrink’s office and says he’s discovered the secret to Alex’s happiness and then suddenly reverts back to Lodka.....

Dang it! Now I need to repost my plan to practice hard and qualify for the senior tour in a few years. 😡

🤣🤣

Are you planning on putting in 10,000 hours of practice?

Nope. 1500 should do it. I'm a natural ball striker with a strong mental game. I have impeccable putting skills, but 1000 of those practice hours will be solidifying my 3-6' putts. You can't win on tour if you miss those. 😉

@iacas - I'm glad you got the site back up. It must have been a long night.

Nothing happened until about 2:04am today. In fact, it may have been the backup process that runs at 2:05am that may have prompted the problems to finally "break" something, so really it's just been since I woke up at 7am that I've been doing this. And by 11:00 they'd rebuilt the RAID array and got it back online, and I've just been tacking down a few little things (like uploading through the site) since.

I'm a retired Systems Administrator and I can guarantee you that RAID 20 is twice as good as RAID 10...  :-D

The real pros all use RAID 9001 to go with their fancy ISO certifications.

    • WOW! That looks brutal. Years and years ago, while playing somewhere in Chicagoland I had a ball end up very much like that. I tried to slam it out but ended up driving it deep... I mean DEEP under the grass, never to be seen again. As far as I know that ball is still under there.    The story continued from there. Since I was lying 2, literally under the turf I took an unplayable lie. I didn't retrieve the old ball. I just tried to drop a new one in the bunker one club-length away. Do to the slope I ended up having to place it. Things kind of went off the rails from there. When it was all said and done I ended up making an 11 on that par-3. My buddies and I called it my "Spinal Tap" hole...  "This par three goes to eleven".
    • The argument one might make for Bobby Orr has to emphasize that he was a defenseman, did things no defenseman ever did before him and very few have done since. It changed the way coaches looked at the position. Without considering the context, simply looking at adjusted points per game stats against the greatest forwards of all time, is a disservice to Orr..  Consider this. The top ten scoring seasons in NHL history for a defenseman are owned entirely by two men. Orr and Paul Coffey. Coffey, you may know, played with both Gretzky and Lemieux. Only three other players have ever scored 100 points or more in a season. Al McInnis, Brian Leetch and Dennis Potvin did it one time each. Talk about different eras? The highest ranked season after 2000 came in at #40 when Brent Burns scored 83 points in 2018-19. Bobby Orr deserves some credit because he was more than just an offensive player. He did play defense, he hit, could fight if he had to. Of course, its some of those type of things that helped shorten his career. Lemieux is said to have saved the Penguin franchise, but Orr made a ho-hum Bruin franchise into a massive thing in Boston.  They say that ice rinks popped out of the ground in Boston during the 70s and it was because of Orr. Not sure if I'd call him GOAT, but he should be in the top 3.      
    • 1. Yo! Use paragraph breaks my friend. Makes it much easier on the eyes!😉 2. You had a good round. You were very conscious of that....Voila! Shanks. 3. I had a very nice round going for a 6800yd+ course and I hit my only shank on a par 3 tee shot while the smoke show car girl watched.    4. Congratulate yourself. Nice round!
