As many of you noticed, we had a site crash today. From around 1300 until 2200 UTC (2021-05-20).
A HUGE thank you goes to @mechanicjay: who spent the whole time trying to get our ndb (cluster) working again. It's an uncommon configuration, which made recovery especially challenging... there's just not a lot of documentation about it on the web.
I reached out and got hold of @The Mighty Buzzard: on the phone. Then put him in touch with mechanicjay who got us back up and running using backups.
Unfortunately, we had to go way back until April 14 to get a working backup. (I don't know all the details, but it appears something went sideways on neon).
We're all wiped out right now. When we have rested and had a chance to discuss things, we'll post an update.
In the meantime, please join me in thanking mechanicjay and TMB for all they did to get us up and running again!
