Hi ESD.
Yes, AVEN is definitely down. I'm not a moderator over there any more, so I don't know all of the gory details, but the error code that I am geting when I try to log on is a new one that I've never seen before.
I know that DJ is aware of the problem and that he has been trying to deal with it, but it is apparently being really stubborn. The latest update that I have seen says that it is a hard disk error and that he is working with the host to try and recover it.

I welcome people to participate here, of course, even though this site is very slow compared to AVEN, but I will also post the address for AVENites Unite, which is the old stand-by site for when AVEN is broken. Here ya go:

I will definitely post as soon as I learn anything new.
There's a good chance that AVEN will come back online when I'm not looking, and it might be old news by the time I find out and post it.

(LOL -- that's never stopped me before, though!)

Latest update:
DJ says the data is "mostly" recovered.

'Not sure what that means, but that's all I have for now.

LOL -- probably not!
I suspect that those have been carved into stone, polished and stored someplace very, very safe.
They will go away eventually, though, no matter how much they might be cherished by some ... who will remain un-named.

I suspect that if anything got lost it would only be content that had been added since the most recent backup.
'Course, I have no idea when that might have been. I guess we will all find out, eh?

You'll have to post that on AVEN when it comes back :D

In the past, when AVEN had problems, posts and members joined since the last update would be lost, but that's it. Usually a few days worth of stuff.
