This announcement at ibiblio:

Quote:
Hello everyone,

The storage array holding most of our Linux distributions crashed hard.
Rather than spend over $600 to resurrect 5 year-old hardware that is out
of warranty and was beginning to show signs of failing prior to last
night, we will be speeding up our migration of the distributions onto our
new Netapp disks.

This means much more space on much more stable hardware, but it will
mean waiting until we hear back on a few small technical questions before
we can create the volume and populate it with data.

We sincerely apologize for this outage, and hope to have the volume
accessible again by tomorrow.

I hope it doesn't propogate through to the ibiblio mirrors!

Also, my site is experiencing problems.
This affects the Developer News Blog and the Developer Forum. They are misbehaving, also very slow (I don't know if the slowness is some other factor, as sometimes there is a problem when you are accessing from certain regions).

Thanks Barry. I figured something was up.

I'm glad it didn't happen later as I was about to ask my ISP to add Puppy to their ftp server. They have other Linus distros there and downloads don't count towards my quota. Would have been a little embarrassing to have the site down if they went to have a look.

Is ibiblio the correct site to have them get Puppy from when it's back up?

Gee, Barry! I didn't think there was THAT much demand for Puppy 2.15CE!!! Razz

We broke it? Laughing

Don't forget the dotPup installer! The installer doesn't work anymore!

The Puppy dotPups disappeared along with Puppy on the server....

EDIT: Also nluug.nl died too!
(And the FTP of ibiblio came down with the server too.)

It's a conspiracy! puppyfiles.org is down, ibiblio.org is down, nluug.nl is down, gatech.edu is down ... we have been cutoff from the rest of the world. My guess is it's JEALOUSY! Razz

And pkagfiles will be down soon, 60+GB in less than an hour. Confused
Anyone get a torrent working for the updated final? I've tried a few times to get a trackerless torrent going, to fill in until well seeded. I'd rather not host the tracker myself. No luck so far. Embarassed

Torrents for the sfs addons would be great too. Wink

Way to hold the fort, PkaG! Shocked I notice that Puppy is now up to number 10 on the DW Last 7 days download list and still climbing! Cool

On the 30 day list Puppy is now up to 18, and climbing. Only another 10+ average downloads per day and it will surpass Vector and climb to 17!

All this and only 1 or 2 working mirrors for at least 24hrs!

Thanks, it's just a server that was still up, not now though... 186+GB gone sadly. Things would be much better in ranking & downloads if mirrors didn't go in the dumper all at once. Shocked

I've got another decentralized torrent to test. Question

EDIT: Another torrent that doesn't seem to work, maybe others can help getting torrents working. I'm only trying decentralized torrents only for many reasons. The more that can help the better. Very Happy

Smile One kind Puppy has been trying to set up a future server, another has been trying to upload to an existing server (that he does not seem to have access to) Embarassed

Despite this (or maybe because of it) people are still finding and enjoying Puppy.

Incidentally it is a conspiracy. The fish done it. Very Happy

New mirror (Final - second release)
http://www.tmxxine.com/viz/puppy-215CE-Final.iso

Hope to have new locations soon Smile

More mirrors welcome.

Subject description: ..special attention BarryK
 

Just downloaded this message from ibiblio.org:
Quote:

Our RAID controller freaked out!
We're bringing our distributions back online.

We lost nearly 150 distributions when the array storing
them died on the evening of April 9th. If you own a
distribution on ibiblio.org, please visit
http://www.ibiblio.org/help to request that your directory
be recreated. If you have uploaded ISOs to be filed
by our Linux keeper, please do so again. Sorry.

ibiblio admins
April 12, 2007

I note that Puppy's directory is still not back in their tree, so maybe we need to comply with their request above?

Cheers.

I have some of the older Puppy-1.xx versions, don't know if ibiblio hosted them.

Disaster is everywhere, especially on the web, time to shore up Puppy again?

Posts are appearing in various sections of the forum asking where are the downloads.

Can I suggest that whenever things get back to normal that this information be posted to all the sections as it appears that others are only looking at one or two sections and have missed this announcement

I have already advised what little I know and suggested that they keep a lookout for an announcement but every little helps

Ian
