Blindy.TV offline

Blindy.TV is currently down due to a major disk failure. Our content is all stored on a RAID with journaled file systems, but even this was apparently not sufficient to save us from data corruption. Technology always finds a way to ruin your day.

We are working to see if the corrupted file system can be recovered. If not, we have a backup from last Wednesday. Restoring the backup would take most of a day, and would also destroy a major part of the new content update that was loaded to the system on Thursday. If recovery efforts are unsuccessful after a time, we will give up and reload the backup.

Most likely, Blindy.TV will not return until Monday or Tuesday at the earliest. Please watch here for updates, or follow @BlindyTV on Twitter.
