When I get to the pfhorums, what I do is open every unread thread (view new posts) in it's own tab. The title in the tabs don't help, they all read The Pfh..., and I have to scroll all they way up to check what the topic actually is.

I was unable to get to the data center until this morning. From this morning to 17:00 CST, cocide was performing a remote backup, after which I started the web server again.
Hopefully this was a one-time glitch ( though my cynicism doubts it ), and the server doesn't cause any more trouble. Regardless, all the Pfhorums data is fully backed up and will continue to back up remotely.

Since the HDDs passed a filesystem check, the raid is reporting needing to rebuild after the incident because the drives were lost at different times (on all partitions, not just the rootfs), and the SMART status is all good on both drives I am really hoping that it was a problem with the SATA cables. I know it is unlikely for two SATA cables to be problematic at the same time but these boxes are old, very very old, and they have not always used the cables that were in the case so it is possible that they could have been slightly damaged or had some dust buildup on the contacts or something like that - I have seen stranger.
If anyone wants to donate money for new hardware I wont complain, the RAM in this box is slower than most SD cards and a free smartphone is probably faster by a ton. But hey, its free to host and on a decent enough connection so as long as it works right?
