revision99 was down for much of yesterday.
I don’t know exactly how long because, hey, whaddaya think, I obsessively check the site every ten minutes day and night? Well, maybe I do, but I was at work when I discovered that the site wasn’t loading, so all I had time to do was try it in a couple of different browsers, go to another site that I know has the same web host as me (it was working), check my FTP access (no dice), check to see if I had exceeded my bandwidth quota (no problem there), verify that I had paid my bill (yes) and wring my hands for ten minutes.
Finally I called my web host — on the phone. A nice man named Peter looked up my file and told me that they were moving my server, the problem was on their end, not mine, and everything would be fixed “by the end of the day.” The server was going to be located in Missouri, so shout out to Jack: My site should be quite zippy for you now, buddy. I didn’t think to ask them where the server was being moved from, or why it was being moved. Anyway, things seem to be OK now, since about 10 PM on the west coast. Let me know if you find any problems, OK? (jones at revision99 dot com)
Web servers, huh? Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em.
UPDATE, Friday Afternoon:Â APPARENTLY THEY ARE STILL SCREWING AROUND WITH THE SERVER.Â SERVICE HAS BEEN UP AND DOWN TODAY.Â I’LL MAKE IT UP TO YOU, I PROMISE.
