I’m going to write a little bit more about what happened last night…but I’m going to work on getting today’s headlines thread up first.
If anybody was madly refreshing trying to get to my site since last night…I apologize for the inconvenience and will work to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
I’m a little upset with my hosting company right now. Looks like their systems are not redundant, which for a hosting company, is really effed up.
They had to replace a key piece of equipment last night, and for some reason their SLA with whoever manages their hardware doesn’t appear to be top notch (hey you have to pay money for that, time to cough it up!) So they had to wait for maintenance….blah blah blah….
The entire outage was about 19 hours. The company’s ENTIRE infrastructure went down, which is crazy. Again. Hello, redundant systems? So they couldn’t even email updates to customers. I was really worried. And then, when I woke up this morning, I went totally bat-sh*t when the site still wasn’t up.
I finally found a thread on a 3rd party webhosting forum where customers where huddled, fretting. There are peeps who are running huge operations on their websites, and they lost money today.
Anyway, they had warned me that there might be a little bit of down time this week, but only at night, and only for a few hours at most.
Again, I apologize…
