Uploads are working. We reclaimed space by deleting old video files (e.g., ones that were replaced by a remaster). We still need to get new hardware; details are in Donations and a New Storage Server and Cleaning up the local download servers.

Downloads should be working fully.

The forum should be working; see the Site Downtime and Forum Upgrade thread.

Cron jobs are running again. RSS feeds, alert feeds, and the weekly top lists should be working again.

Also, there has been a report that adding direct links doesn't work (claims there is a 404 error). I haven't had the opportunity to investigate yet.

The site seems to be experiencing random very slow page loads. This might be related to the dedicated search DB being down, and that load instead being on the main database.

In other words, uploads are back. Thanks dero. :up:

Edit: oh, looks like you'd edited your first post to reflect this already.

After trying to uplaod my AMV several days ago which didn't work cause of the server, it worked now. But I got this message saying: You are now the proud owner of a screwy error message from .Org. That error message is: "Operation timed out after 5000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received" Please report this in the forums.
Can you help me here?

Whenever you get that message while in the Confirm Video area, just try clicking on Confirm Video again and reenter the information. The message may still pop up, but keep trying, and it will eventually go through. I've had it happen before, but doing this did eventually work it out.

It's not a problem of space, though -- it's just a quirk that happens for some, but not for others. Let us know in the Moderator's Drop Box if it still gives you the error after a lot of retries, though.

Out of curiosity, why did you bother restoring these two if nobody can download them anyway?

<shrug>, because my tool doesn't check for that...

Hey, we can hope that someday maybe copyright law will be fixed and we'll be able to remove that block. Yeah. Sure.

Ok, went through another batch... This the 5th of 10 (technically batch 4, as there is a batch 0). A lot of restored vids this time.

Well, I'm going to do the retries GloryQuester mentioned above, but I figured these messages should be reported either way, since they say they should be reported. No big deal, though. I'll report it in the Moderator Dropbox if the problem persists and I can't find a way to solve it.

"You are now the proud owner of a screwy error message from .Org. That error message is: Operation timed out after 5000 milliseconds with 314 out of 314 bytes received Please report this in the forums."
There's a worse room than this? How?! Is it on fire?!

Ok, here is the last batch... This is the largest... After this space is eaten up, it'll have to wait for the new drives to be installed.
