Old Raspis domain (raspis.ddscentral.org) was temporarily unavailable due to Dyn updating the wrong DNS record (I use Dyn for DNS back-end hosts). Now it’s fixed.

For the good news, I’ve got some new builds of AndEx and RaspAnd. Some of you were asking for them. I will have them uploaded soon.

Zebra server is down due to power issues. Will update.
UPDATE: back up.

May 14th, 4.00 PM EEST: Raspis is down again, reason unknown. Hope it’s just the ISP. All was working fine an hour ago.
May 14th, 6.00 PM EEST: Back online. Downtime probably caused by a power issue.

Raspis server is having serious issues. Will keep you updated here.

April 16th, 12:40 PM EEST: Raspis is down, probably another software crash. I’m working to get it fixed. Will update where there are any news. Sorry for the inconvenience.
If you need any stuff from Raspis, let me know, dds[alpha]ddscentral.org.

April 16th, 8:50 PM EEST: back online.
April 17th, 1:15 AM: down again, WTF ?
April 17th, 4:10 PM: back online. Added a script to check connectivity every 10 min. This should help avoid downtime (update: it didn’t).
April 17th, 8:00 PM: This thing is trolling me. Months of absolutely no issues and now it works like s**t, crashing and rebooting like every 2 hours. I’m terribly sorry folks 🙁
I’m doing the best I can to fix this, yet it seems that’s not enough. This makes me feel like an absolute and total CRAP.
Will try to put up a mirror of Raspis public downloads on Zebra.
I promise to work harder tomorrow to finally figure out what the devil is going on with than server and return it to stable operation again.
April 17th, 10:00 PM: It came back online. By itself. What the f***. Will keep the server as is until I can have a look at at (physically) tomorrow.

New domain for Raspis

Raspis server now accessible under it’s own second-level domain, https://raspis.eu/
Old subdomain under ddscentral.org will continue to work but will redirect all links to the new domain.

Raspis service disruption.

There was a short downtime of Raspis server due to system crash.
All seems fine now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Zebra server (zebra.ddscentral.org) is down due to ISP maintenance works.
Maintenance is scheduled to complete at 5:00 AM EET, but connectivity should be restored sooner.

EDIT: Zebra seems to be back online, will update should it go down again.

I was given a badly damaged 500 GB hard drive from a laptop to recover data from. As always, computer owner had no backups (sigh !).
At first, I’ve tried mounting the drive in Windows (it was an NTFS formatted drive with Windows on it after all) but no go. I could get the drive letter to appear but when trying to access it, Windows told me the drive wasn’t formatted.
I was about to quit on trying to recover the data but then (as a last resort) I’ve decided to try to mount the drive (read-only, of course) on my Linux server with NTFS-3G. And (LOL !) it worked !

WTF Microsoft ?

Zebra maintenance

I’ll be doing some maintenance on Zebra server. Some downtime possible.
