Recovery Gossip, Part 4

For the first time in four days, BuddyGopher collected away messages. Seven away messages per second is a new record for us. That's over 25,000 away messages per hour. Most of the buddies were already on-line and away when our OSCAR array initialized, so there was a huge backheap to collect - plus all of the buddies who may have gone away during the next fifty nine minutes. Away Message collection rates later cooled down to our average of 12,000 unique messages per hour. So we are happy that the biggest custom-built AIM BuddyList still runs strong with around 72,000 buddies.

Strange things continue to plague a few circuits in our faulty disk drive, so we won't know until tomorrow whether or not our loving users will be required to re-enter all of their buddy names into their BuddyGopher Buddy List. Maddest props to anybody reading our development blog and patiently waiting for BuddyGopher to come back up. Shout-outs go to John Wigle, who has been holding our hand with the EV1Servers support staff, Marek Publicewicz, the real brains behind BuddyGopher, and anonymous Japan-bound person for his continued partnership patience. Our tentative back on-line date is Friday?

A little funny?

Well hey, no comlaining here. Thanks for your service, we are getting a hell of a lot more than we are paying for out of it.
