Hard Drive Failure at the Yak
Right now, all of my yak.net-hosted sites are offline due to a hard drive failure. I discovered the problem about 3PM this afternoon, and have been working with my friend Strick, head YakMaster, to get the site back up and running. We've got a month old backup of data, and I've got most of my content backed up on local systems, but I don't know if the other webmasters using the site are in good shape.

The good news is that mail service is still up and running. However, it could go down for a while when we get someone to the server room where eniac lives to check on the hardware problems. Hopefully, the hard drive can be recovered, but the error messages in /var/log/messages looked pretty dire.
