Server Rebuild

Again - sorry for the delay in getting the site back online.
We ended up not only purchasing some new parts and then having issues with them, but also completely rebuilding the server from the ground up. (anyone who has ever done this knows things can be a pain especially working with different types of raid [when cards don't do what they claim to])
Anyways, site is back up and running a lot faster as most of you can tell.

We don't foresee too many more of these incidents in the future so get use to seeing it up!

Site slowness, email not working, etc

The purpose of this news post is to openly apologize for all of the issues that the site has been having. The combination of me not being around and cisc0ninja not being used to handling a site like this has caused these various issues. Unfortunately both of us have day jobs and my current schedule has not allowed me to work on the site. I am trying to use what little free time I have to look into site issues and see what is going on with the server. Please bare with us as we get things moving smoothly again.

New Proc's

As most know from the site being down, we have been doing a lot of major upgrades since the begining of the year.
I'm pleased to announce that we now have new processors in the server and everything is up and working great!

Thanks for sticking with us while we continue to make this better!

Dissolution

After much discussion, the position of Vice President has been dissolved. This decision was carried out as a result of the growing stigma around that position and does not effect Origin's status as a contributing member.

Server Maint. Work

Sorry for the server being down for so long.
This was essentially something unexpected during a routine maintenance upgrade.
Between having a raid issue and upgrading the entire system, as most of you saw the effect, we were down for a few days until we could find the time to figure out exactly what was going on.
This has been fixed and everything should be back to normal, once again sorry for delay.

More Maint. continued

The server will be going down for about an hour or two this morning. This is not during peek hours so hopefully everyone won't be too pissed at me. I'll bring it back up shortly, thanks for the understanding.
