Last night one of the hard drives that housed our database had a Catastrophic failure. By complete luck I was able to recover from an weekly back-up that I had earlier this week. I was until about 5am trying to get everything back to normal again. I'm still not quite sure how far or bad the corruptions spread. For now I know that it knocked out the database completely as well as our email systems.
The good news is that everything was recovered from last week. The bad news is that any posts from after 4 days ago didn't survive. I've since switched to daily backups instead of weekly in case this happens in the future. We've repaired the drive and everything should be back to normal. However if you see any strange PHP errors please let me know ASAP in case we have to roll back again.
Sorry for any incoviences or loss of epic posts. This was a random occurance from an otherwise solid hosting company that we've been working with for the past 10 years. For my own sanity I hope this doesn't happen again, but if you feel the site is slow or not responding at a decent speed let me know in replys below. Thanks again.
