Priorities my friend, take care of that flu first, make sure you're fully recovered, and only then look into the forum issue. We will check back in with you sometime later hopefully when you're feeling good again.
I'm stubborn and never take flu vaccine myself so I've got a few good ones too over the years, I know how it feels. So far I've dodged it this year (knock on wood!) but it's still early in the winter here.

Just when I passed the 250 million credits mark for the FreeDC Campaign at BU: 'New' problems at FreeDC to take care of
Friday January 27th 2017.
One of the SSD drives has failed completely and another is showing errors. I need to pull these drives, replace and rebuild the stats. Going to be a while.
Update 3:30EST : Ordered 2xSamsung 850EVO 250Gb SSD's for overnight delivery.
I'd say order six of those buggers and make a RAID-6 array
(can already be done with four, but performance increases with the number of drives.
In case there is no RAID-6 controller make it at least RAID 5).
Even RAID 6 isn't the holy grail though

I just saw that error too
Even if using only 2, I would buy a few more to have spares on hand. That would make the replacement and rebuilding much quicker.
I feel sorry for bok as he has had so many problems with the hard drives on his stats computer(s). They seem to be a really weak link. I'll send him some $s for repairs.
EDIT: Done I sent USD100

Reason: add edit
If he had a running tally of parts he needs, like an Amazon registry list or similar, I'd send him a drive or something.
I also wonder if he can do a cost/benefit analysis of his setup and see if it would still be worth it to keep maintaining his stats servers locally or just move his databases and code to the cloud.
Hey Dave, I see you did something behind the scenes. The Wiki site is now online again.
Stats are up too, but Docking is still pulling its data from the old -no longer active- url, as Keith found out
