Due to an over keen data-centre staff member inadvertently taking one of our servers from its rack and formatting it, we have suffered an extended period of downtime for some of our services. These services include RSS topic feeds and User Count badges.

A new server was brought online today and we have restored the information from backups to this server. Normal service is now resumed.

If you notice any problems, let us know in #help on irc.geekshed.net.
