I've just been notified by our automated monitoring system that the server which houses CortexRP.com currently has a failing hard disk in it's RAID array. We've scheduled remote hands at our Matawan, NJ datacenter to take the server offline at 11 PM EST tonight to swap out the failing disk and replace it with a new one.
Once that's complete, we'll begin the process of rebuilding our RAID array, during which period the site may run in a degraded state.
I'll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
