Server and System Status

Server NC017 has been shut down

30 April 2009 19:33:58 +0000

Having been in operation since June 2003, server NC017 in Vancouver was shut down today.

Some services have not yet been fully migrated to server NC020 just yet. We’re working on those right now and everything should be working within the next few hours.

Mail relay to be switched back to server NC017 from NC020

27 April 2009 14:38:15 +0000

The mail relay ( will be switched back to server NC017 from server NC020 at 16:00 UTC (18:00 CAT, 09:00 Pacific) while server NC020 is rebuilt prior to its being pressed into full service.

This should not have a substantial effect on anybody.

Blog is live, and with Twitter and too

25 April 2009 00:57:30 +0000

This blog is officially live and we’ve redirected all links to old status pages here. We still have a few features that need to be activated, most importantly commenting, but these will be completed soon. We also intend to expand the scope of this blog to cover specific services — e.g., web servers, mail servers, webmail, domain registration and management, etc. — in addition to the servers themselves.

We’ve also set up accounts with Twitter and to make following status updates easier for people who use those services. While we usually develop and host our services in-house, using third-party services such as these will also allow us to communicate with you should something catastrophic happen to our own infrastructure. Keep in mind that, by their very nature, updates on Twitter and will be sparse and infrequent.

Once we get the commenting system working, we’d be happy to have your feedback. Comments on posts are automatically closed after fourteen days, but you can always contact us through the main website at

Thanks for your time.

Secondary server NC017 will be shut down on April 30th and replaced with server NC020. Our mail relay ( has already been switched to that server, and other services will be switched over the next week or so.

Further updates will be posted here, and anyone with services on server NC017 will receive email notifications.
