View Full Version : Server Crash!

Sorry for the down time. I ran a standard "yum update" for the server and, apparently, it didn't like the new kernel which it downloaded and died.

I believe everything is back up there. Let us know if something is missing.

We are going to limit updates to security critical services in the hope of avoiding such problems in the immediate future!

Thanks guys!

Can no longer access the thread about the T2 challenge though... did it get lost?

http://www.woodmann.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10444&goto=newpost was the link according to my RSS - now says I don't have permission (maybe a new one stole the thread ID?)

Cheers,

Will

Unfortunately we lost a couple of threads since none of us had a more current backup at the time of the crash. If we had known a crash was coming there would have been a backup ready. But then if it had been known that a crash was coming... hmm there must be a paradox there somewhere..


The T2 challenge and the ARTeam tut threads were lost. If members want to reconstruct these threads from memory, or imagined memories, then please feel free to.

maybe do the m$ practice, backup before applying update / service pack

edit: You might want to fix the un-linkifier (?).

Naides edit:Sorry for the edit, LLXX, I removed the [url] and placed as [CODE] so VBulletin software shows the whole text of the link.

Kayaker edit: un-linkifier re-linkified :-)

Thanks, but it is not a 'simple' matter to reconstruct a Thread, particularily when the ThreadID has been overtaken by a new Thread.

Shub-nigurrath is invited to repost his notice of the new tutorial notification:

ARTeam: Special Issue For SecuRom 7.30.0014 Complete Owning, AnonymouS, Human, deroko

and people may post their comments again.

That depends entirely on whether or not your "comments" remain "objective" or become "personal," as I mentioned before.

I've already allowed you to "huff and puff" a bit more than is really necessary in the exetools Thread.

By all means give JMI a hard time . Do whatever you desire to him.
I will "spank" him if he gets to bitchy .

I can remember way back when the current moderators would give me a TON of shit when I screwed up the server and I PAY FOR IT.

The least you all can do is give him some shit on my behalf .

Thanks and good night, Woodmann

I guess it just doesn't pay to ever give "big pappa pump" a hard time. Look see. Now he's inviting "everyone" to help him get even.

Go ahead. Hit me with your best shot.

Bad coding style...

until (Blood_Flesh_Brains_eyeballs_scattered_all_over_the_place == true)

should be

until (true == Blood_Flesh_Brains_eyeballs_scattered_all_over_the_place )

Yes, I've been following that coding style for the past few years, and it drives me crazy when I need to compare two variables because I try to think about which would be best to have on the left and which best on the right from a style point-of-view
