Recovering From Database Crash..


nuclear.jpgFresh Blender News, Every Day... BUT NOT TODAY!

Yesterday morning, the database RAID server that hosts BlenderNation crashed and our ISP has been working frantically to get everything back online. At the moment, we're still missing about two weeks worth of content but we should get that back later today. More information will follow..

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    Good luck fixing everything up

  2. Cool ! You know that the blendernation headlines still isn't working on right? But glad Ur back! :)

  3. Worst case for my main information source around blender!!!!
    ....but you´re back - good news and good job!!!

  4. Please be quick about it.. I want to keep up with the SIGGRAPH news!

    As the say goes:
    "You're never known until you are missed!"

  5. Glad you're back. I had to recover from dataloss several times already (some worked, some didn't) and wish you good luck on getting your content back.

  6. Ah! I was in croatia, for two weeks, and I wondered, what happened, when I came back...
