The latest outage - and hopefully the others over the past few weeks - was caused by a hard drive failing on the server. The hosting company was able to burn an image of the data, so theoretically, everything can be recovered; however, if anyone has a recent cached version of the ladder / pyramid standings, please save a copy, just in case. In the worst-case scenario, it should be possible to reconstruct the standings as of a few days ago.
My only functional email account right now is firstname.lastname@example.org. I plan on spending most of tomorrow trying to get the site up and running again. If I encounter any issues with incomplete data, I will likely need someone to send me a zip file, but I won't open a zip file unless I'm expecting it.
I'll post updates in this thread as I learn more. Please post a response if you do have a cached version of the standings.
