You guys have probably noticed that winston.parabola.nu (the server
running wiki, repo, and git) is down.
Winston is graciously donated by 1984 Hosting, and I am working with
1984 to get Winston back online.
What we think happened:
Yesterday, Winston was rebooted as part of 1984's response to the
Intel CPU bug. It did not come back online; SeaBIOS saying that
there is no bootable disk. It turns out that the first 0x210000 B
(~ 2.1MB) of the disk are all 0. We believe that this is the result
of a crash that happened in November, but went undetected because
Winston hadn't rebooted since September.
We believe that we can restore the partition table from a backup, and
get this worked out with no loss of data.
