I just thought I’d write a quick blog post to wrap up the week before heading off to enjoy the May bank holiday sunshine… and what a week it has been!

The week began with a rather frustrating critical hardware failure on one of Curverider’s servers which took down our community site, SVN and bug tracker among a few others.

No data was lost, and we were able to get the main sites back online in fairly short order once the new server was hooked up and installed in our datacenter.

On a lighter note I am very pleased to welcome Leonard Lin to the Elgg team.  Leonard was previously senior hacker at Yahoo and creator of  Upcoming.org. Most recently he has also been involved in the Obama campaign.

Exciting times ahead!

And while we’re on the subject of Upcoming.org, I would like to take this opportunity to point you in the direction of the Barcamp Transparency entry on Upcoming. Go sign up now!
