A song well-done. I enjoyed it.

You'll be pleased to hear linuxmusicians.com provides a 100% uptime guarantee! All engineers on our payroll are working round-the-clock to provide this level of service. Following industry standards, you're eligible for a refund of part of your payment when this uptime is not met. Feel free to get in touch and claim your refund!

You don't understand the problem, that's why joking. I'll try to explain.
In our russian segment of network, there was a very popular low-level programming portal.
This portal was supported by three humans that had admin access to the server.
One of them has suddenly died. Two others became inactive, so it lived with his own life until was hacked.
Then, after it was hacked, one of admins has raved about it and has completely closed the resource.
On the request of forum users to give the database of the forum this admin didn't answer anything.
But users have found the rare dump of database (about 4 years old) and have launched the clone of that popular resource.
So now we have a low-level programming resource with information lost for about 4 years.
If you want to something similar happened to linuxmusicians - go on.

Luckily we're not hosted on a private machine but on a professional shared hoster (uberspace.de), so if I'd go MIA they could probably arrange something.

An angry admin is always a risk...

I understand your story and it's really unfortunate what happened there, but I think it's unlikely that something similar would happen here.
