It occurred to me that while I try and keep the IRC people in the loop about what's happening with Mojo, I neglect to actually post what's going on, so here's what's happening, and I apologize for not showing ya'll the love that you deserve.

We sent the hard drive to a hard drive recovery place called Aver Drivetronics. Don't go there ever. They were unable to fix our drive and if you ask me, they were very unprofessional and kind of incompetent.

So now we sent it to a new place, the Data Recovery Network, and supposedly they are working on our drive and we should hear a status report soon.

So maybe Mojo shall return soon? Yes? I hope so. Though we all know that members of Mojo's staff are compulsive liars about that sort of thing. :)

To really have an up to minute account of what's going on, head over to irc.gamesnet.net and read the topic in #lfnetwork, the official update source.

Peace,

-DJG

Is that a hint to something or other. And DJG. you're right on time, I was just about to ask about this. I can't really expect any estimated time on this but any kind of swing in the dark guess as of when we'll see our beloved mojo and affiliated sites again?

They guarantee turnaround in 4-7 days, so we'll see.

Wow, that was better than I expected. So about a month then (because we can never trust these kind of companies) :p

It's also worth mentioning that "results" in 4-7 days doesn't necessarily mean "success"... unless I'm out of the loop on that.

So in 4-7 days you'll either have the sites or what's left of them or you'll know they're gone forever?

In 4-7 days, they'll have results. That means that in 4-7 days, they'll be able to tell us what pizza topping they had on teh night that the system went down. :D

I lied. It's six to eight weeks and I get a free glow in the dark Tony the Tiger figurine in exchange! It was damn hard tracking down those hard drive UPC labels anyway...

But yeah, I'm guessing if these 'blokes' (look at me I'm trancending the international gap!) can't do it, we won't have files. :(

That doesn't mean we can't have a contest though! ::

It's probably illeagal, but we could start an internet pool to see when mojo come fully back online. we could bet in different days and bet real money. It could become real good.

Yeah, we bet real money then DJG wins a packet, in mysterious circumstances.

Just letting everyone know that they cloned our drive yesterday and were about to start the data recovery process. Hopefully DJG will hear a status update today on how it's going.

Yeah, didn't think about that, DJG could just not upload the site until his date comes up. Meh, whatever, it was still a good idea. Now awaiting news from our favorite paper bag.

Latest word is that the files are being pulled off the old drive, and it seems to be going okay for now... BUT... it looks like we have some work ahead of us in reorganizing all the file directories and putting Mojo back online.

I'd just like to say thank you, Data Recovery Net...

And screw you, Aver Drivetronics.

And thank you guy who makes the coffee. Sorry, but whenever I see end credits, there's never a thank you to anyone who makes the coffee. I mean it's the coffee that keeps them going and they don't even care. There's my rant. Of course I have no idea if you guys even had coffee on thos cold lonely nights awaiting news of the HD. Maybe you had tea.

Perhaps they drank beer, human blood or human effluent who knows. Who cares. ;)
