regarding yesterday's post, a message from Circle Software in Christchurch

Again we are all fine, all systems are running and there have been no outages. The servers are housed in a very secure building with many lines of redundancy.

The one issue we noticed this morning is that the backup drive system did not mount so we are running backups now and will manually copy them to the dev server in the office.

The new office is also fine, I am very pleased that we are here and not in the Arts Centre which will have been hit and is now totally cordoned off.

So far I have not been able to make it home but am heading there now to assess any damage and to start the clean up. We will be keeping an eye on systems to make sure that everything continues to run smoothly but there may be some delays in answering emails and phone calls.

Just had news that the backup drives were shut down while running on generators so all previous backups are also safe.

Thank you
Warwick Schaffer
