Sunday's unscheduled outage

The administrative interface for the MT blog server was down for most of the day on Sunday, September 9. Static files were not affected.

The system partition for the server ran out of space, and that caused the database server to go down. I will be working with our Collaborative Services Group (CSG) over the next week or so to make sure this doesn’t happen again. We may have to schedule an outage within the next month to correct the disk space issue. Watch this space for updates.

I apologize for the length of this outage.
