In an unlucky event, both hard drives of a RAID pair on the server at forum.pololu.com failed some time Monday morning, causing us to lose all posts made after our last backup on Monday at 3:30 am PST. There were some high-quality contributions made during this time, and we hope that the authors will be able to recreate most of what we lost.
We think that the timing with respect to our move to a new server was just a coincidence, as we’ve had several accounts open with this ISP for more than six months without any other serious problems. In addition, while restoring from the backup, we decided to move to a better server, to make the forum faster and more reliable. Please let us know if you have any problems with the latest configuration of the Pololu forums.
Thanks for you patience!
