DownTime Update

You may have noticed that many of my sites weren’t up this weekend. We had a hard drive fail in one of the boxes hosing dotCULT, NoSlang, Feedbutton, and some other smaller sites.

The hard drive has been replaced, and everything looks good now. I’d like to say I’m sorry about the outage, I’m doing my best to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

I’ve ordered a 2nd server, and will be slowly moving sites to this newer, faster, dedicated box. I’m going to keep the old box set up too, so that way if anything ever happens I can just flip the DNS switch and have another copy live.

Anyway, I’m sorry about the downtime – espeically to the loyal feedbutton users. I promise I’ll do my best to keep it from happening again. Thanks for understanding.
