Webserver break down? There’s a shield for that!

The person behind wtfmoogle apparently had problems with their web server, and decided to replace it with an Arduino until a new server can be secured. As of the time that I checked, it claims to have served the site over 3800 times, with 356 of them since the device had to be reset:

Moment of silence please…
On June 13nth 2010 at around lunch time my webserver served its last page then suffered a total raid card failure :(
Old JerTech_Main will be cremated in the next day or so and its ashes stripped of copper and aluminum…
All is not lost, a full back up was performed
You can send your condolences to The Moogle at HaxtorMoogle at gmail dot com
http://www.jertechonline.com my web store is still online
This page is hosted on my arduino until a new server is built

    Poor little arduino! I’m curious why it keeps going down though? I can understand if it couldn’t serve up pages fast enough.. race conditions non-stop.

    Not up on my shield recognition but that looks like a sparkfun box. What’s the thing plugged into the analogs? an accelerometer?

    That picture reminds me of the flash destroyer somehow.. i feel the need to rescue the chip.

      From the description, it sounds like a full-blown server computer went down (i.e. “raid card failure”) and an Arduino was recruited to replace it. Makes one wonder why a server was pushing pages that an Arduino can accomplish (unless it’s just a “stay tuned for the replacement server” place holder)

        Yeah, it’s just a stay-tuned page, at least for now :-)
