Service Outage [22 Aug 2006|01:38am]

gizmo
We (Presence) accidentally knocked Kyogi (San Diego) offline while installing a few security mods. We don't really care enough to go fix it this late in the evening, so expect the machine back in the AM. I doubt you'll lose any e-mail.

Web Server Down [11 Jun 2006|03:40pm]

gizmo
[ mood | annoyed ]

Web Server is down for a bit. Someone managed to get us hacked (again) by not keeping their PHP scripts up to date (phpBB or gallery are my bet). Because of that, we were used to packet Italy for 4 hours at an average of 115 megabits. Go you.

We've taken the webserver down on Kyogi until Paul and I can sort it out. Once that's done I'll be removing the responsible party from Kyogi permanently.

Hi.

Some of you may have noticed that iRev/Kyogi is basically down at the moment. Well, it's not completely. We are in the middle of a transition to newer more powerful hardware. Unfortunately our colocation shut off the old server before we could completely migrate to the new server, mostly due to the fact that Presence and I spent too much time drinking in Vegas this weekend. Anyway, your e-mail is fine, it's being received and stored normally. Your e-mail archive is current to 6/18/05 (It will be completely current when we perform our final sync). Some websites and databases have been transferred, and they're online. Others weren't and they should be back early this week.

Rest assured we are working hard to restore service. Infact, I am currently barreling down the I-15 South at 100 MPH, in the passenger seat of my Dodge Durango using Verizon wireless internet to tune the new server to the best of my ability.

Stop bitching at Presence via e-mail, ICQ, AIM, or any other medium.

If this isn't acceptable, I recommend you contact www.aplus.net for a professional hosting service. They're pretty much completely stable and have decent prices. I'll give you a tarball of your data when I have it, and you can be on your way.

To recap: 24-72 hours of downtime expected, e-mail is safe, be patient.

iRev / Kyogi System News [16 Jun 2005|04:25pm]

presenze
Kyogi, the server that iRev now exists on, has served us well over the last 8 months. Our new Internet Service Co-Location provider is excellent, the server has been rock solid, and the users on iRev have been great.

However, gizmo and I aren't quite satisfied, and are upgrading Kyogi at the end of June. We'll be swapping out the server and adding a new RAID mirror hard drive array and 1.5 terrabytes of monthly traffic allotment.

The new server will be at a new IP address, same physical location. The migration to the new server will happen over the weekend of June 24-26th, probably transparently to most people. Email, Databases, websites, and whatever will seamlessly pop over to the new server. The furry-forums at Battle Forum and AnimeBelle will be read-only for that weekend, but everything else should flip over to the new server and be active pretty quickly, perhaps maybe only an hour or two of downtime.

Thanks!

iRev's LAST WEEK of Service! [24 Oct 2004|02:18pm]

presenze
Well, this is it, everyone! iRev's last week of service before it closes its doors on October 29th.  Everyone who's moving over to Kyogi are just about all moved over, hopefully with no downtime or loss of emails.  I'll have the physical server with me starting November 1st, so if you missed the chance to download your files, let me know.

Its been an honor to host everyone and their stuff, but I'm kinda glad its over:  I can focus on my real life, and enjoy playing computers again without the stress and overhead of the responsibility of hosting and figuring out how to pay the co-location bills.

If you need any assistance or need to contact me, please use any of the methods on irev.net/contact to message me. Also, big big thanks and a huge welcome to our friends who are now hosted over at Kyogi.net; thank you for your patience and support during the transfer.

11 people have made donations to the iRev fundraiser to bring the total to just over $1600!!!!

We can't begin to describe how overwhelmed we are with this show of support! This makes a wonderful dent in the $4000+ we owe in hosting fees!! We'll continue to update as the donations come in!

The whole money thing.... [11 Sep 2004|12:51pm]

ophy
[ mood | hopeful ]

I can't begin to thank everyone who has been so generous in the last 36 hours.  Paul and I never expected or even thought about something like what has happened.  We were moved to tears several times last night.  You guys are the best.  It's stuff like this that makes shutting down iRev so hard.  This is a community - family.

I think I need to clarify something though.... I've read something a little disturbing in #L and I don't want people to get the impression we're trying to make money at this point.  Paul and I have used our credit cards to pay for iRev's hosting for over a year now.  The $1200 that has been quoted around for the last couple of days is what we have to pay Viawest right now, and we don't have any more room on our credit cards because they're all full of past iRev charges.  We owe over $4,000 worth of hosting total for iRev.  We still have to pay off those credit cards....  it's only because of the credit cards that we've been able to keep iRev up *this* long.

I just didn't want anyone to this that we're trying to pull a fast one here...

Whats up with iRev [09 Sep 2004|11:58pm]

presenze
This is just a filler until I can talk to people individually over the next few days and weeks.

Free image hosting is closing. Its closing down because that services uses two thirds of iRev's resources: Bandwidth, hard disk usage, sanity. I started the free image hosting service for friends of iRev to host their webcam shots and forum signatures. Battle Forum, ClanBOB, and other iRev forum users were welcome. It was expected it would be abused and grow, and I secretly hoped that people would see how great the server was and want to go ahead and put down the $5/month for a real website. Kinda like, "first one is always free" and then get people hooked on being able to have websites.

Sure, that failed, and I kinda knew it wouldn't ever work, but I also didn't expect it would be such a drain of resources. It has to go, and it has to go soon. Sorry to all my friends in the Forums that enjoy its simplicity, but really, there's many other places out there that can provide the same free service, too.

Now, about the rest of the iRev pay service: There's about 200 users, of which 25 pay for service. The others include friends whom I don't want them to pay, people who once paid, but I didn't keep up on, people who I didn't support completely and had to refund, and even more reasons and failures. Regardless, the co-location fees added up and too little money came in to keep iRev self-sufficient.

After much depressing soul searching, it became clear that what was once a fun hobby and joy became more stress and time than I can invest, and Sarah and I could really use the money for growing our house and family. Gizmo and I are investing into a new smaller tighter hobby server for us and a couple of iRev's core users. iRev.net itself will close up shop end of October. Most people will move onto other web and email hosting providers, some won't bother with their websites anymore, and those remaining few friends who enjoy hacking and playing computers will join us on the new server.

I wish I had the energy and creativity to figure out a way to make this work for everyone and keep my beloved wife sane, but I have to keep grounded and realize that my hobby needs to be put on the back burner for a while. I also have to figure out how to pay off the last four months of iRev colocation bills, $1,200.

iRev will close its services to most users on October 31st. Case by case basis I'll be able to help some users and friends out with their domain names, websites, and emails and help migrate people's stuff to new internet service providers.

Thanks for your understanding and support.

Michael Buonauro - Letter from his mother & Final chapter to "Marvelous Bob" [08 Jun 2004|10:22pm]

presenze
Michael Buonauro, friend and user of iRev, ended his life May 28. A week or so before his death he broke up with his girlfriend Megan, was terribly depressed, but tried to soften the blow to her by describing himself as a monster and demon. We know this is so untrue, instead how incredible he was: Creative, funny, thoughtful, and caring.

He uploaded to his unknownhero.com website the final chapter of his "Marvelous Bob" story, seemed to make right with himself and those around him, and then ended his life.

In the final chapter the main character, the hero Bob, dies. The Hero's last thought is of his beloved Gracie. In his death, he gives his strength to the city, giving the city his powers to resolve their conflicts and crises. He dies for a purpose, a good purpose, with a good heart.

The final chapter to his book was published today at http://UnknownHero.com

Michael's mother has posted an open letter for Michael's friends and fans on Michael's personal website, http://MichaelBuonauro.com. Details regarding the Foundation and the Marvelous Bob book's copyrights to be announced.
