The HinterWelt web server connection was struck by lightning Sunday, August 29, overloading the surge protection and destroying the video card and one of the dual scsi drives on the server. Luckily, despite the gods best efforts, the HinterWelt site was down for less than three hours. The over seven hundred Iridium System characters stored in the CHARGen character generator, update and storage system were never in danger due to back-up and recovery procedures. However, some of the site was lost due to the strike falling between our normally scheduled back-up of the web server. We are rebuilding.
We want to thank everyone for their patience and helpful reports during this time. The lost pages and information are nearly replaced and much of the existing site has also updated during the current repairs so stop by and see how the updates and repairs are going.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
