15:40PM The server Lannister has to be shut down in 20 minutes in order to replace a cooling fan which has failed.
The fan must be replaced urgently to prevent overheating of the server and to avoid the possibility of data loss.
16:00 Lannister has been powered down
16:05 The faulty fan has been replaced
16:06 Server is booting up now
Websites will be slow for the next 20 minutes or so as everything settles down. Thank you for your patience.
9:50PM We’re working hard to mitigate a DDOS targeting two sites on this server. Sites on this server will be unresponsive until the attack has been stopped.
10:20PM Almost there, we’ve stopped 90% of the attack, now blocking the last sources.
10:33PM Things are almost back to normal. Server iowait is a bit high, so sites will be a bit slow until that is resolved. Thanks for your patience, and apologies for this inconvenience.

The DDOS has been mitigated. Apologies for the inconvenience.
12:55PM The server Baratheon will be rebooted within the next 10 minutes to address a software error. We expect downtime to be no more than 30 minutes, unless the server requires a file check on startup, which could take up to 2 hours. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
13:16PM The server has booted successfully, and services are returning to normal. Websites will be slow until the server load drops over the next 10-20 minutes.
