Monday morning, the Link Vault team sent out this email.
Link Vault Status
We have received an email from our server hosts in Port Arthur, Texas.
They have told us that they have had no power since Hurricane Rita hit the area on Friday. The flooding around the area has not damaged any of the servers that they supply us so that means all our servers and data are ok.
They have an emergency generator that they use when they lose power. However this generator runs on gasoline and has ran out during the storm. They are currently trying to get a supply of gasoline from the only available working gas station in the area. They have said if they manage to get gasoline they will have the power back to the servers ASAP.
The worst case scenario is that they do not manage to get some gasoline and cannot get power back to the servers. They are estimating it could be up to 14 days until the power lines are repaired and stable.
We will keep you all updated on the situation with the servers.
We would like to thank you for your patience on this unfortunate matter.
The Link Vault Team
The links on the Web sites were not slowed or anything due to this outage. But access to the forums and the site were down. Now, we all know DigitalPoint has his Coop Network which almost competes directly with the copy-cat Link Vault network (competition is a good thing). But what is very high-class of DigitalPoint, is not only allow the Link Vault users to participate in his forum about the incident, but also offer advice to the network. Other forum discussion at SEO Chat Forums.
