Stats server is back online and fully caught up after the outage.  We’re still running on reduced redundancy on the power supplies, however.

It is probably time to consider a complete replacement of this machine, since it has been running for more than six years (April 2004).  It has also recently been suffering from regular failures on one of its RAID controller ports, regardless of the drive connected to it.

As a reference, the current stats hardware is described at the top of http://faq.distributed.net/?file=63

We’ll be investigating our resources and options over the next few days and hopefully be able to begin the replacement process soon.

Thanks for your support!
