The system being used by linuxalpha.org is also being used as a secondary / 
backup for GNOME's CVSs repository.  It is usually up 24 / 7 in an 
airconditioned room with UPS.  Over the last three day weekend a transformer 
to the building blew / burnt up.  It took the power company almost four days 
to correct this problem.  Since our UPS is only good for about three days, 
this caused many systems to go down including the box hosting linuxalpha.org. 
 Upon restarting the system there where problems with two of the hard drives.

The system staff replaced the hard drives on Monday. I thought that 
everything was working before I left on Tuesday for LWE.  I just got back in 
town.  It is late in the day here, but I will attempt fix the problem, this
