Hurricane Florence Check in thread

Hey kids, so it looks like the mid Atlantic is gonna take a whoopin from this twirly one Wednesday & Thursday this week. Gov Cooper declared a state of emergency late Friday and evacuations have started. We're in the middle of the path, and even though we're 2 hours inland, it's going to fling us around a little & dump a load of rain. NC, GA and VA are all going to take the brunt. Batten down, charge up, don't forget the pets and stay safe.

MetaSluggishness

Is anyone else experiencing instability with MetaFilter today? I've had a fair number of time-outs and slow-downs with site loading and refreshes. It seems only limited to this particular site. Just checking in.

Unavailable from comcast?

I have a weird MeFi availability issue. Can't establish a connection to it from home, but I can get to it using work's VPN. I'm not driving in to work today to verify, but I'm willing to assume it works from my desktop at work too. [more inside]

MetaFilter Offline

MetaFilter was offline from around 9:45 PM Pacific Time to 4:00 AM Pacific Time. A hard drive failed in our database server, taking some of the database with it. We were able to restore from a backup that happened at 7:40 PM Pacific. So we lost data during those two hours. We apologize for that, the long downtime, and the bumpiness as we get things running again. [more inside]
