A few minutes ago all alarms went off on my phone. 8 of the servers just went offline. Not sure what is going on yet, looking into it.
UPDATE: Problem is fixed. The servers where still running, but something was wrong with the ARP entries for the server. I'm investigating the cause with my hosting provider to see how to stop this from happening again in the future.

After doing a major update on the servers, two of them didn't resume after a reboot. I'm currently investigating what exactly went wrong so I can work on fix. Until I'm done the GrabIt Search is not available. Sorry for the inconvenience!
UPDATE: Problem fixed!

We are moving over to 64 bit IDs for the GrabIt Search results in November because we are growing to over 4,294,967,295 entries in the GrabIt Search engine. Unfortunately the old code in GrabIt is unable to handle these large numbers.
So I did some work on GrabIt this week to enable GrabIt to handle the ever increasing size of the GrabIt Search engine. Please update as soon as possible, or at least if you get the 'No articles for this Grab' error message somewhere in November.

Made some changes to the backend system to improve the speed of the Members Only page. It should now come up immediately, even for long time members with multiple years worth of statistics.

Fixed some small bugs and did some performance enhancements on GrabIt since the 1.7.4 release was a quick release to fix the GrabIt Search problems. The updated version is now available in the form of GrabIt 1.7.4 Beta 2. Happy grabbing!
