ChessieDB has been offline on several occasions these past few days. The city damaged our sewer pipe a few weeks ago (unbeknown to us at the time), and the damaged pipe couldn't handle the big rains from last week. Luckily the servers, etc., are up high, so they were saved, but the resulting activities (disaster team cleanup and on-going renovations) have taken their toll. Hopefully things will be a little more stable in the coming days, but there's still plenty of work to do. Once it's done, the servers will have to be moved back down to their usual location, which will cause another outage for a few hours.
So, if you find the ChessieDB website is not responding, a worker might have just un-plugged our ADSL line (as they did a few minutes ago!), and the website should return shortly. :-) Sorry for the inconvenience.
