5:49 PM - Server Downtime

Friday morning, we had the boot drive in our server fail.  It was an Imation 32GB SSD drive that was purchased on December 27, 2009 and installed in February.  The whole point of a SSD is greater reliability and we've learned that's not the case.  

The drive is still readable (mostly) but writes to the disk are failing.  

About half the services are back up on the server, and this site is one of them.
