Website Maintenance

This server underwent maintenance and was offline from 23.00 to 23.25 GMT-8. Hard Disk Imaging was done during this time and the physical hard disk was swapped as a failsafe procedure.

We use Acronis Drive Image to create images of the Linux Drives by removing the drives and mounting it on a Windows machine and then back to Linux.

LILO must be reconfigured when the image is mounted back onto another disk. Use the Linux Install Disk 1 Rescue feature to re-install LILO.

Prior uptime was approximately 53 days. Our backup procedures include nightly backups in addition to these procedures above.


  1. Good post and I support it very much. By the way, anybody try this Sony SD Card Recovery Software? I try it and I think it is good.
