Peter Gabriel

Web servers hosting musician Peter Gabriel's web site have gone missing from their data center. "Our servers were stolen from our ISP's data centre on Sunday night -- Monday morning," reads a notice at The incident is the latest in a series of high-profile equipment thefts in the past year, including armed robberies in data centers in Chicago and London. How secure is your data center?" [Slashdot]

I thought it was brought to TekServe to fix an electrical problem? Last I heard, it shocked the monkey.

Seriously, there are reports the sever was buried. There is footage on the web showing Peter Gabriel "digging in the dirt".

An open message to PG -

Excuse Me. Intruder? Darkness! Sledgehammer? I don't remember. Perspective... in your eyes? Not one of us. I grieve. Don't give up, big time! Come talk to me, only us, that voice again.

Oh and, no more Apartheid!

This just in...

The server has been destroyed. Destroyed by a sledgehammer. Possibly red rain, but most likely a sledgehammer.

WTF: Two separate armed robbery incidents? This makes me think that stuff must be worth stealing.

Brother John took it and ran into the chamber of 32 doors. Peter if you lead Lilywhite Lilith thru the crowd you will get it back

did jonny leather get a good look at what was likely the "baggy clothes wearing hispanic thugs" who perpetrated the crime, not to mention their not having been the intended demographic or clientele of peter "crome dome" gabriel initially anyway ???

How does someone steal an entire web server - it's not like you can fit it into your pocket?
