During the downtime I realized that there's no other place to chat about sports programming and that's quite bad.

I also want to confess that I'm probably addicted to Codeforces.

You will laugh, but really me too. I caught myself visiting Codeforces several times from my phone, although I knew for sure that I would only see a stub. Because I put it there!

Tomorrow I'll write some details. Sorry, I can't do it now. I didn't sleep a night.

    But seriously, Mike, thank you once again for this amazing platform. Get some rest and relax! You deserve it.

    Sometimes I close facebook tab in my browser cause there's nothing interesting there just to reopen it within two seconds cause that's first suggestion in my browser. These moments make me question the meaning of my life.

I sensed such blogs even before CF was back. Yes, I am addicted to it.

    Hey, does anyone know if Codeforces was available as m1/m2/m3 during the whole time the server was down?

Here is my story. My vacation was almost over and I was visiting my mom in Saratov when the incident occurred. I just posted the comment about the round how the website stopped responding. I quickly realized that there was an issue with the database server. An unusual thing happened — the database just stopped responding. A little later it turned out that one of the disks on the server stopped working. It was not possible to solve the problem remotely, so I booked the first flight to St. Petersburg. The next morning, I flew out and immediately upon arrival I found out that somehow the disk slightly jumped out of the PCI Express slot (apparently, under the influence of general vibration). Honestly, internally, I was preparing for the worst-case scenario and was very happy about this outcome.
