Site was down

this site and others was down for 15 hours (afaik) with some Drupal+MySQL errors:


PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in lock_may_be_available() (line 167 of/var/customers/webs/pheonton/lgdb.org/includes/lock.inc).

http://www.linuxgameawards.org/ is another site that was effected, in fact it is still down as of writing this post.

maybe another chat like the irc or something could be setup in case something like this ever happen again where people could get in contact.

Forums: 

The server this site was hosted on was compromised and consequently shut down. It took me a while to transfer the site to a new host. In the next days, the other sites that went down as well will be moved too.

On that note, I've been paying reasonable attention to the Aggregated News, and I really don't recall all that news that suddenly popped up by the Time Doctor. Is it just me, or was all that not really there before, even 6 days ago? Maybe I'm just paranoid, especially after a large crash.

So you guys might have noticed that linuxgames.com was shut down and we did aggregated news form them, since timedoctor was a last contributor we are now getting the news directly form him, but what i wasn't aware of, is the wide range of topic, totally unrelated to linux, that he covers in his news....
