Ouch! Hardware problems take SLRgear & Photo of the Day offline!
Just a quick note, thanks to those who wrote in to let us know the sites were down: The server handling the bulk of our Photo of the Day and SLRgear.com traffic developed a file system problem earlier today, apparently due to a hardware failure. Our admins have taken the system offline, replaced a possibly bad drive cable, and are running a file system restore on the box as I write. No ETA for when it'll be back online though, depending on what damage was done, we may have to do a partial restore from backup. The sites could be back up in as little as another hour, or could be offline until tomorrow sometime, if we have to do a major restore on them. :-(
