Our server is having some unknown hardware problems causing random reboots and loss of packets so we are going to have our data center pull it off the rack and do tests on all the components and replaced them if necessary. This means all services provided by Computer Science Canada will be down in till the testing is over.

This down time will happen 10PM EST and could last an hour or two.

The server is now about 90% fixed. There still might be a few outages this week as i fix the last problems and trying to get everything 100%.

The problem was a fryed motherboard casuing random power loses. It was replaced last night with a newer one witch caused a bunch of new problems. The kenerl had to be recomplied for the new hardware and then all kinds of other things needed to be recomplied and/or reconfiged for the new kernel.

All the main services should be up, some e-mails sent in the last 24 hours may have been lost tho. If you see any new errors or bugs let me know ASAP.
