In the spirit of openness, I thought I'd best let you all know what was
happening in the past week.

The server on which the Lua sites and services[*] are hosted had a bit of a fit
and threw one of its RAID discs and proceeded to have a lot of issues with
large processes causing out-of-memory situations.  This caused a lot of
slowness for the websites and the mail system.  Last night at around 22:00 UTC
we rebooted the machine and then begain the RAID rebuild.  This would have
caused more slowness for around 5 hours until it was complete.

The system is now back to 100% and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

As an aside, I also discovered that Earthlink had decided to block our outgoing
MX IP address for some reason.  I have requested that be unblocked and mail
delivery should resume for Earthlink customers (such as those of you with addresses).



[*] lists.lua-org and the lua-l list itself.
