On Going XDA-Developers Maintenance

You may be aware of the downtime that the site suffered yesterday night due to the the failure of the RAID 10 array. The site is still undergoing some maintenance and will be completely off-line tonight for a short period of time as well, according to this announcement:

Last night, we rebooted the database server to update the kernel. During the reboot, 2 of the 4 drives dropped out of the RAID 10 array and they happened to be from the same stripe. This meant the failure of the array.

The maintenance was to update the kernel and then make a configuration change in the database to allow replication. (We did not get the config change or replication setup)

Tonight (9/26), we are going to take the site offline for just over an hour and setup database replication so we have additional redundancy and will allow us to increase the frequency of our backups.

We understand RAID is not a backup, Replication is not a backup, and we keep off-site backups of everything.

Thanks for your support and understanding

You can read the whole story on what happened yesterday as well as keep up to date in the announcement thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
