I am apparently on the revolution server which has also experienced an outage. I have been receiving the following message now for 3 days:
Current Outage: Hardware failure on hosting machine (updated 7 hours 22 mins ago)
This is an update on the webserver ‘revolution’. Our admins are currently working on two issues for this server. The first issue is attempting to run a file system check on the old hardware, in the hopes it can be recovered and not be moved to new hardware, or at least used for a passive move to new hardware. The other issue, is the intermittent slowness of the backup file server. New hardware is setup and is attempting to use the backups to run your sites and restore them, but it is much slower than usual. Our apologies for the longer downtime, we are working on getting a solution for either of these issues as soon as possible.
We appreciate your patience!

I need to know - has anyone received any updates or positive resolution? Are you able to recover your site data? Are you sitting there, lost and hopeless like me that years of blogging has just gone down the toilet?
I am about to contact an IP lawyer and perhaps pursue a class action suit against Dreamhost. Anybody have any thoughts?
Please let me know asap,
