Sorry folks, a bad tech problem has occurred at Magnatune, and the service is currently unavailable.
I'm working on fixing it just as soon as possible...
update: the main server is down (operating system corrupted) and we'll be restoring from backup.
update #2: as good fortune would have it, we had switched to new backup software just three days ago, which means that I have a full backup from Sunday, and incremental backups for each day after. Woohoo!
Usually, my experience is that when you look at your backups and you really need them, you find they "didn't work" for some previously unnoticed reason.
For those of you who are curious, this current problem was caused by my installing some very-badly-behaved new software that was supposed to auto-detect "beats per minute" for each song at Magnatune. It was supposed to make some charts, but instead the software it depended on wasn't available, and the bpm script went a bit haywire. It erased most of /bin/. Result: unbootable server. My bad, though, for not testing the software first from an unprivileged account (whoops).
For the techies out there: Magnatune is running Debian Linux, and the server hadn't previously been rebooted in 6 months.
