*SceneID passwords - update25 Jun 2005

25.06.2005 update: Phew. Seems like there was more problems that we first saw. All the accounts registered through Pouet.net during the past month had faulty passwords and when we disabled the password renewal option there was a sudden burst of emails from all angry people complaining on their passwords not working. All the problems should be fixed now, and all those who sent us email should've received now new passwords. Sincere apologies on this hassle and we truly hope nothing similar will happen anymore. - melwyn

As some of you have noticed, we have temporarily disabled password retrieval for SceneID accounts. This is due to a security breach we spotted a couple days ago. We hope to get some free time to fix it soon and get a more secure password retrieval system back. In the meantime, try not to forget your password and avoid emailing us about it if you please.

Oh, and speedy, next time you find a security breach, just email us will yah? :)

*Ben "Diablo" Shelton (1974-2005)05 Apr 2005

We are very sad to report the passing of a great friend of ours: Ben Shelton aka Diablo / Hornet. Ben helped manage the archive for years, always had great improvement ideas, and was a very good personal friend of many of us. As a member of Hornet, he was also instrumental in the running of the Hornet Archive. Ben's legacy will live on in our hearts and minds, and in scene.org

He was found dead in his apartment in Portland. The medical examiner said he died from "natural causes", they think it may have been a sudden case of meningitis.

We have lost an incredibly good man at an incredibly young age.. Ben had a lot of plans for the future, a great lust for life and sense of humor.. He was a very creative, smart and kind person. And we'll always remember him dearly.

for more information, visit #trax on irc.scene.org
Some friends have also put together a small homepage about him.

Rest in peace Ben!

*Small server instability11 Mar 2005

As you may have noticed from the black out last weekend, we have been experiencing some server instability. 2 disks in the raid array had been becoming degraded. This is not a critical problem, because we have a raid5 system with 1 hotspare drive (which means we can survive 2 simultaneous disk failures).

The disks have been replaced and we have built a new kernel (which has a newer driver for the raid controller) and installed the newest control tool (3DM 2) which should prevent server halting from ECC repair actions in the future.

So i'm just posting this news item to let you people know what the downtime was about exactly, and that our man Jeffry has hastily taken care of whatever needed beeing taken care of.
