Dear valued Members,

you may have noticed that our website was inaccessible for about 10 hours. Yesterday at 20:39 JST one of our hard-drives under RAID10 failed. It has been replaced since and after one rough night things seem to be back to normal.

I apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your patience!

When it was down, I thought "This can't be, TCC is never down". Then I realised, that that by itself is very impressive and just decided to wait. Big thanks for all your efforts, including having spare drives!

Thomas, thank you for your good work. (And the software upgrade is excellent too.) The money needed to keep this running must surely be nothing compared with the time, but hard drives (etc) do cost money. Send me a PM with bank details and I'll make a modest donation.

That's very kind of you. While it is true that the hosting fees are quite considerable, the new disc had to be provided by the hosting company.

We might set up a donation button in the future though. Thanks again.
