Next Nature Server Dementia

NextNature.net
March 27th 2011

Over the last few days the Next Nature website has been suffering symptoms of dementia due to a hardware failure at our very fancy and luxurious web hosting provider Media Temple. The incident was caused by to two failed storage drives and likely a failed RAID controller at their data center, which resulted in memory loss at NextNature.net.

Recovery is currently in progress, yet this may still cause some glitches or déjà vu experiences over the next few days. We apologize for this situation. We advise you to take a nice walk in the park while we are reanimating.

Obviously we are disappointed by the failure, as we chose the supposedly top notch host Mediatemple to avoid such events in the first place. We are working on a more secure hosting plan for the future. For your information: the picture above was not taken in a Mediatemple data center, rather, it is our peculiar image of the week.

I very sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. An incident of this nature is very rare and has never happened before prior to this particular case. We very much understand your frustration and disappointment. Of course, as with any large scale failure, we will learn from the experience and take measures to prevent similar a occurrence from happening in the future. If you have any more questions or concerns regarding this incident and your account, please contact us.

@Felipe: Our course we could study the case as a next nature disaster, yet I can assure you the problems were real and are not an experiment. At least not a planned one.

i still don't know if this post it's a kind of experiment or something

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
