BlogsNow down for 12 days

The machine that BlogsNow runs on still freezes with

CPU 0: Machine Check Exception: 0000000000000004
bank 4: b200000000070f0f

I have replaced Memory, CPU and motherboad. CPU got an up- and motherboard a slight downgrade. It runs for a couple of days, and then dies. After it dies it sometimes get’s back up only for a few hours. Once it has been down for more than 8 it will run for another four days or so. After every crash I have to fix the database, which takes 70 minutes. The fix of the autoincrement insert_id however takes even longer and took the machine out in the last 3 out of 2 uses. I am running an
i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux kernel 2-6-9 with an 8 port 3ware card.

I really don’t feel like replacing this expensive card, but might need to.

BlogsNow was great, as long it was running smoothly. Now it needs allot of care, and I am considering to never turn it on again. It’s sad to leave the field to all these others attempts. None of them is convincing me. I would miss BlogsNow.
But that’s just me.

    Don’t give up on it… You have a very well trafficed site with a huge Page Rank. It would be such a shame to see such a unique and central resource leave the WWW!
