We are happy to say that we are back online again, and that we are back to full functionality. For the last week we had been battling what we thought were issues that finally culminated in a disk controller failure. If you have dealt with one of these, you know that you can get some pretty confusing indications as the controller goes through a "soft" failure. Hard failures are pretty obvious if you are sitting at a screen hundreds of miles away. You just don't have a operating system to view or manage. Soft failures are another beast entirely. As it turned out, the controller finally did a hard failure at about 2200 EDT Sunday night. We were able to get the HP service personal in this morning and at about 0840 or so, AVSIM came back to life. No functionality or data has been lost. So, welcome back to AVSIM and now back to regularly scheduled programming!
