Mac OS Rumors in transition phase
To all our fans, we are terribly sorry for the recent outage. Our core server, defiant, has suffered a horrible death and the MOSR team is currently working day and night to recover the data. Several weeks ago, Toby checked himself out of the hospital without telling family or friends. Toby, at the time, had just been injected with his evening dose of liquid morphine, but for some reason unknown to us he was released on his own account. Instead of going home and staying home, Toby apparently took a cab to his house, then took the keys to his grandmother's 1979 Oldsmobile cutlass and began driving to Portland, to the Black Light Media, the headquarters and parent company of MOSR. When Toby arrived at the Black Light Media driveway, he was unable to properly stop due to being under the strong influence of morphine and as a result of the terrible accident he suffered just months ago. Toby accidentally drove the Oldsmobile through an exterior wall of Black Light Media. Unfortunately for Toby and another member of the MOSR staff, The wall Toby hit was adjacent to the master bathroom, where a member of the Black Light Media Staff was bathing. The force to the wall, shattered the tub, sending waves of Water from the bathroom into the nearby Black Light Media Sever room. Although Ryan attempted to absorb as much water as he could using a bag of the new MOSR t-shirts (coming soon), the water was too much for the shirts. The water flooded into the Server room where the MOSR core server lay. The water soon hit an outlet and sparks flew everywhere, starting a small fire and blowing the power. The police arrived within minutes as did the fire department, due to the fire. The Fire Department went in with hoses, and flushed the whole room and all the servers. This is also the reason our sister site, Xerces.com has been unavailable.
Toby was ironically rushed back to the same hospital he checked himself out of 45 minutes prior. He suffered lacerations to his big toe, a sprained index finger, and a broken nose. Unfortunately Toby has still been unable to obtain health insurance. With hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments built up from his accident a few months ago, this has literally crippled Toby and his family. Toby thanks all of you who donated to him previously, and regretfully may have to ask for your assistance again. Toby is accepting your support through the Mac OS Rumors Honor System.
Your head-hancho was also rushed in a separate ambulance because he was the Black Light Media official bathing in the tub at the time of the accident. I cannot thank you all enough for your support. The ones who found out have been incredible and a great support group.
We are hoping to recover some data soon. In the meantime, we will update the MOSR readers on this site and post some interesting rumors coming through the grape vine, in the meantime. Our elves are also hard at work on a new version of MOSR that will deliver over 50 new features. A members area is also in the planning!
Thank you all so much for your patience.
The MOSR Staff
