Slackers' Network Stolen  
We're down again, but this time it's not our fault.

At some time today (after 10:30am 12:30pm, broad daylight!) someone broke into Salim's house and stole a bunch of stuff. As of right now, I don't have many details, but some of what was taken was slackers.net. The only saving grace is that, thanks to our use of dilapidated hardware, they apparently didn't think the PoS machine in the corner was worth taking. So we still have Alexandria, which means they didn't steal our irreplaceable data (AFS and the backups of IMAP, and the Kerberos DB (we have an offsite backup of this, but it'd be useless if the principals were compromised). And thanks to the recent IMAP debacle, we know the backups are complete (though they may have stolen everything before last night's backup finished)

Salim & Anna (who'd just moved in :(:( ) were away for the weekend, but we know that the system was there around 10:30am 12:30pm PDT today. If any of you can verify a later time, they'd appreciate it for the police report.

Most importantly, Sprout appears to be unharmed.

EDIT: I just realized that kprop runs every 15 minutes. Last kprop was at 12:30.
Current Mood: concerned

let me look and see if I can add any verification... SSH to gomorrah was working as of 11:15 eastern this morning. I have a relatively hight traffic mailing list that mail.app checks every five minutes (assuming mail.app is working correctly) and it last updated it at 15:32 eastern. (can't verify for sure that's right, because nothing was downloaded since it would have been an autocheck, but that's the last time that directory was touched).

Oh yes, and I officially hate people.

That confirms my kprop at 12:30 PDT. Once the cops get there, we have a pretty accurate time (within 15 mins or so)

Fuck! As someone who's just been robbed myself- please pass on to Salim, and of course, Sprout. Boy am I ever glad *that* guy didn't get outside.

That sucks ass. My sympathies.

That sucks. Hope nothing else of value was stolen.

Are you guys in need of hardware? I've been looking for an excuse to replace my Dell PC...

gwenix has offered to help provide hosting if we need it til stuff is up and running again.

OMG, that's terrible! I hope not too much else was stolen. :(

The last I'd heard from you was that one e-mail saying that another e-mail was forthcoming. If you guys need any help getting things back up and running, I'd be glad to help any way I can, and I'm sure Tim (sleeping at the moment) would offer the same.
