Disk crash brought down hack.org & others

While I was on vacation the main hack.org server, totoro, suffered a disk crash. Timeline:

totoro was later brought to my home. If I removed the hard disks and turned one of them up-side down I heard a loud "click"!

We had backup of many things but not of the XMPP server data, so accounts, rosters, and any offline messages not yet delivered were lost.

If you don't see any presence from your hack.org XMPP contacts, add them again.
