Lest anyone blame the two who colocate the machine for me for free, it's my own damned fault; I should've found a way to make better offsite backup images, but twenty-six gigabytes of data is a lot to find any regular way of backing up. I should've noticed when one of the RAID plexes went stale, but it was warned about on the console and foobar is a headless machine in Maryland; I'm in Seattle. I never saw the console messages. I just...I should've paid closer attention rather than assuming since everything was working that everything was...well, /WORKING/.
In retrospect, my real mistake is that I was trying to run a machine with the amount of services of a small professional ISP, but never charged money for it. ISPs have catastrophic failures too, but they have money to pay to fix things or to get better equipment; having never taken in money for this, I have the money for neither, and so we end up with this.
This isn't to say that Noderunner's totally deceased. All the data /is/ there, just scattered in files now named for their disk location. I'll be looking at how to put things back together and fix up the RAID array later; I'm not going to let it go down completely. But I no longer have any idea when it will be back up.
I just...I feel physically ill. I may get offline for a while.
