    A Donkey's tale for you all
    We're back...... finally. The week so far has been a bit of a donkey's ass. Those of you who have tried to get onto here over the last couple of days will know we're been out of action. Bit of a saga really and one I'd love to bore you with. We host our site on a dedicated server located with a US company called theplanet. There's been a fair bit of discussion about them on other boards recently, mainly because their crash bought a whole heap of sites down. Theplanet host something like 55,000 site across a bunch of datacentres. On Saturday night one of the datacentres went pear shaped. An electrical short caused one of the power transformers to blow up. I've a friend who shorted out a circuit board and it blew him clear across the room. The tranformers serving 9000 servers are pretty serious and I figure it'd be quite spectacular to see one go pop. The carnage took out 3 wall in the datacentre and all the power (obviously, pay attention...). None of the servers got mullered fortunately. Now normally the backup generators would kick in, except in this case they were blocked from cranking it up because the fire dept weren't too sure that putting more power into an already terminal infrastructure would be a good idea. Some logic in that. So theplanet started putting out 1/2 hourly updates to notify people about what was going on. Of course these sorts of updates are always optimistic. They initially put out a 'we are checking it out be back soon' which progressively got more pessimistic until the point that they came out and pretty much said .. this might take a few hours to rectify. At this point we thought about swapping the site out to another server but with the predictions for downtime from theplanet being small we figured it was probably better to sit tight. When you make a change in location of a website it can take 24 hours for that change to propagate out so people can see the site. After plenty of stuffing around theplanet figured they could get power back up. At this point was was previously a 'datacentre' became floor one and floor two. Floor two wasn't quite as damaged and they were making predictions of half a day or so to get it back up. We had no idea at the time whether we were on floor one or two, but with there being a 6000 servers on one floor (the 2nd) 3000 (the 1st) on the other split we figured we either had a 66% chance of being on floor two or a 33% chance of being on floor one. Murphys law[sic] prevailed. Just as floor two was coming back online we found out we were on floor one. Options were, split the site out to another server or sit tight until they could get floor one back on. By this time we were all pretty jack of waiting so figured we'd cut our losses and install a backup. That einstein of an idea would have been awesome had we have had a current backup. Of course you never find out that the previous server admin was a useless moron until things go terminal. After a good search around we found out that Feb the 12th was the last site dump. Scratch that idea. Back to sitting around waiting.... We'd managed to setup a basic message page on the .com.au domain to tell you why we were down but even that was being a pain in the butt. Because of DNS changes and ISP caching, some of you were seeing it some weren't. Anyway, late Monday night, theplanet managed to begin powering up the first floor by using their backup generator. Wheee hee we thought. Some of you would have seen that the site was up. I of course couldnt. The ISP I have was simply sending me the crappy message page telling me the site was out of action. Our current server admin, smart cookie, jumped in straight away and made a backup of the site. I think it was still while we were saying whee hee. Then things started going pear shaped again. Theplanet, which was by this stage more aligned with Thecircus than Mars, found that their backup server kept popping. After shutting it down again (yes.... no power..... I said keep up) they found out that the Engineers who designed it were from somewhere close to Uranus and didnt have a great deal of idea about putting the correct load circuit breakers on their generators. Happy happy joy joy. Lets commandeer a passing UPS space ship and see if we can get them to deliver another 50 tonne generator, moving at the speed of light of course (just a very very dim light... no power see..... I give up) By this stage the genuis of our current server admin was realised. We had backup. Needless to say, theplanet was let loose to orbit somewhere and after nearly 70 hours we're now running on a backup machine. So apologies for the outage but we're back and yes, we missed you (sort of like a polyp misses its membrane) If you really loved that story and want to read more - here's the service updates that we kept reading. I love the optimism they had. From all at Buckscoop

  • ScarletRubies
    Thanks for greetings and good wishes, Nod, LP & MamaK. Two darlings (4 1/2 and 2 1/2) are being ratbags (but mostly delightful ratbags; lots of fun) and "the other two" or the octopus or B1 and B2 are about three quarters cooked. I'm tired three quarters of the time, anyway. And this carpel tunnel bizzo is the pits. Hate it. It goes away after babies are born, or at least, it has twice before, but (if you'll indulge me a moan for a minute) it's a real PITA to not be able to brush my hair and teeth. I look (and smell?) fantastic, I'm sure. Plus I can't drive when it's really bad. Moan over. Life is great. I bought a couple of lovely Bonds Easysuits for B1 & B2 - 40% off at ELC/Kids Central. Noice. In case anyone else is keen, they will do a phone/mail order if you email them the sales email (which says you can only access some deals instore). Darn - could have sworn someone else posted the deal... now I'll have to do it...

    hehe True! Nothing like getting cash back for things you are already planning to buy! And because you receive it a few months down the track, you have probably forgotten all about it! So it's like finding a spare 20 dollar note in the pocket of a jacket you haven't worn in awhile hehe!

    I think Deals Direct is the way to go. Thanks heaps. On a side note, how many sites whose purpose is to give it's 'customers' money would then spend money to give something back to people after downtime which had nothing to do with them? Really shows the type of people that run this site. Well done guys (and gals).

    http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk158/jenpics_2008/thank_you.gifmsanchez for your lovely comments! We have the best owners, they really know how to treat their members, oh and staff. I can personally say, I know how much time is spent on this site with little time for themselves. Members come 1st is their MOTTO! :D
  • nod
    hehehehee Thanks guys :o ... nod is actually lost for words.. now that dont happen too often I can tell you :D We are just very very glad to be back :)
  • ScarletRubies
    I'll go Deals Direct, too - we should be able to bump our cash back up a few tiers, too. Too bad I'm not in the market for a sword with free shipping... Sorry about the laryngitis, Nod. BuckScoop is indeed a very cool site. Amazing how many online shopping friends I have who don't want to sign up - just don't understand how it could work, or don't have the vision, or something. I don't get a ton of cash back because I don't shop a whole lot, but I have saved so much money by shopping around at sites I hadn't found or heard of before. Thanks, guys/gals/donkeys/other assorted beings.

    I thought I'd won one in round one but it looks like I missed out by one spot:(

    Interesting! I guess the concept is a reasonably new one in Australia. Cashback sites have been running in the USA for years now and have shown just how powerful the 'collective' shopping dollar can be :) And no need to be sorry Ruby. We know you have had your hands full. And I guess that ain't going to let up any time soon :D

    Hi Nod that's Ok. What store vouchers have you got? Any toys related stores - Toot Toot toys? I've been trying to find a promo code for Toot Toot toys as their shipment is double the price when you go over $20 and what I want to get is $22.95! Thanks!

    Hey Nod, it does seem like you can buy $5 vouchers online at Toot Toot Toys, so thanks in advance.
  • leny
    Are we getting these today? :D Did I hear that right... :thumbsup:
  • tlai
    deals direct please.
  • vwh
    ....probably way too late. But if not, can I get the Play4Me voucher? Been visiting buckscoop at least 3 times daily, but I never participate in a competition like this. So I have no idea that you have to keep on following the thread for new info :( Just a suggestion, maybe next time the admin can send an e-mail to notify the winners about further actions that they need to take to claim their winning? (in this case, which stores they can choose from and the deadline). Anyway, great site and great concept, makes me a regular visitor. Keep up the good works. :thumbsup:
  • nod

    I guess as we are not super strict around here about deadlines :D Posting in the forum is usually the way we go. Just keeps it simple :) If you ever have any questions about this sort of stuff just PM me

    Got it too :) Thanks for the advice. I consider myself not that 'technologically-challenged'. But when it comes to forum, I guess I'm a newbie :)
  • nod
    Ok all vouchers have been ordered :) Took my longer cos Deals Direct decided to cancel my order after I have put in the details for 35 vouchers and only had 3 more to go... not a happy camper ... but it is done now No one pm'd with a new address so all the vouchers have been sent to the email addresses you used to sign up to Buckscoop Please Pm me if you do not receive your voucher within the next 48 hours Happy shopping! :flowers:

  • nod
    Hi guys A few of you have pm'd re not receiving your vouchers. Deals Direct seem to stagger sending these out so please wait 48h and if you have not received it then PM me :) I will then chase it down for you :)

    Voucher email received earlier today. Thanks very much again guys.
  • admin EDITOR
    Anytime msanchez.
  • leny
    Haven't received after 48 hours. :(
  • nod
    I logged in to Deals Diret and they say all have been sent??
  • nod
    I have sent an email query to Deals Direct. This will be interesting to document how long it takes them to deal with the problem :D They have taken the cash but is appears that there are several of you that have no received your vouchers :) Fingers crossed it is just a delay
  • nod
    I have ordered 38 vouchers and only received confirmation that 12 have been delivered :mad: Not good enough really. Sorry to all that are waiting for their vouchers. We will have to wait and see what DD are going to do about it. They do say that the vouchers are meant to be delivered instantly. And I was very careful with the email addresses so that should not be an issue and they certainly have not contacted me to advise that the vouchers were not able to be sent
  • leny
    Have you tried their online help nod?
  • dealhunter08
    Thank you nod. I am happy to wait till it works out so please don't feel too stressed!
  • Wally
    I have received my play4me voucher - thanks

    I will try tomorrow as no-one was home when I tried before

  • nod
    Ok had my DD chat - first response was check your junk mail :D But if they have not shown up in 24h then I will email them all the details and we will have them resent :)
  • nod
    Forgot to say that their end reports that all vouchers were sent with no problems ???
  • Isaacsmama
    Hi Nod, sorry haven't received my voucher - but no rush. If it's too much trouble getting it from Toot Toot Toys please let me know. Thanks again!
  • leny
    That's a good idea because my deals direct spam goes where it belongs, but the voucher was unfortunately not amongst it. I think I'm just going to buy what I need without the voucher. Useless they are, deals direct. :D
  • geo78
    i have not received the voucher yet :(
  • Hang
    I haven't received the voucher for DD as well.

    May be worth pointing deals direct to this forum post. That'll get them looking.
