WPRS Server OK Again

 

Thanks to a great effort by Andreas, the CIVL server with all its services is back online: WPRS, WXC, VALI.

We experienced a double hard drive failure, fortunately slightly staged, which gave Andreas the chance of salvaging all the data off the second disk before that one died. The probability for such a double failure is extremely low, but as Mr. Murphy and Mr. Pratchett discovered, things with a million-to-one chance come true nine times out of ten.

WPRS server problem

 

The server for civlrankings.fai.org, our World Pilot Ranking System,

online, but for now the service is not available. Fortunately, all the data
could be saved, but recovery takes some time. We will inform you here once
the server is online again.
