Server Failures Suck

As some of you might know, many of the images on Random Curiosity are graciously hosted by my friends at Maximum7. Unfortunately, a bout of bad luck struck last week when two of the hard drives on that image server suddenly died. As it was explained to me, a RAID 5 is an array of three drives, and when one drive dies, you can swap it out for a new one without interruption of service. However, in the rare case that two die, which is what happened here, the array becomes irrecoverable. The good thing is that the guys at Max7 were able to provide me with another image server, and divine and I spent several hours uploading images to get it back up to serving most everything that points to it.

The bad thing is that a lot of those archived images are still gone, mainly the ones in Jaalin and Trillian’s old posts (like K-ON! and Saki), because we didn’t maintain second or third copies of those like we do for everything else. I’m honestly not quite sure what to do about it at this point since it doesn’t make sense to have them re-screencap entire series. If by chance anyone out there happens to have those images saved somewhere, please email me, but I suspect that the images in those archives are gone forever.
