  • What happened? Downtime / Issues.
    Many of you are aware we were down this entire weekend.

    We were scheduled to move to a new server with a new data center early this week. Our server admin, Greg (known as darklordexp on the site) had just moved into his new house (as in the day before), and he and his family returned home from grocery shopping to find the house had burned down.

    Although all our data was saved, and we lost nothing other than time, its been an incredibly rough week for Greg - he lost everything. Thankfully, his fiancee and children are unhurt, which is what matters, when it comes down to it.

    We're on the new box now, and will be adding more servers soon, so you should continue to see highly improved response times and page loads on the ModMy family sites.

    Our thoughts go out to Greg and his family, as we are a week away from Christmas - a rough time for a blow this big. Thanks for all your work, Greg, it means a lot, and I pray your family will have a great Christmas even with the current circumstances!

    It is not our policy to publicly set up donation campaigns due to some past situations, but if you would like to contribute, visit the following link: http://explicit-hosting.com/payeh.php?fname=mmi. Thanks.

      We would like thank everyone for their prayers and cheers. No we did not have insurance, we had just arrived in Ohio at 5pm and by 10pm we were homeless. Some of our clothes were saved but as for our pets and some anything that was in the kitchen or living room is completely gone or smoke damaged beyond recovery.

      We had just given the landlord the rent to move in which he is refusing to give us back. Therefore our Christmas will be next to nothing due to having to rent another home.

      We are not asking for simpathy, but actual understanding in why this site and other sites in the modmy family were down. Due to this event, I was unable to get to a computer(mine was destroyed as well as my wifes), this caused this site to suffer as well as others.

      We are hoping that in the end everything will be ok, and we do not like to except donations but honestly, for my kids, I would beg on a corner, clean toilets or do whatever needs to be done. We have so far reluctantly excepted the donations from the Red Cross and others and would be grateful for any and all donations sent to us.

      As a way to pay this back in the future, I will personally make sure this site and server will get a reduction in cost, and in the event we can, I will also make sure this site does not suffer such downtime again.

      If you would like to help us out in any way, I will have to wait to talk to the owners about how they would like us to handle this but I believe others have contacted about donations.

      Thank you all for you help and support, we truly appreciate it.

      Merry Christmas and God bless you all.
