Bad omen or harbinger of doom? You decide. Approximately 2 1/2 days on my new server, and the Virginia Department of Transportation decides to test their shovel-sharpness on MCI’s fiber optic lines. Result: They’re pretty sharp. MCI has redundancy, but that was quickly overloaded.
While a normal blogger would take his 30 day money back guarantee and run, I’ve never been accused of being normal. In the short time I’ve been with Revisemedia, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with their service. They communicated the status of the outage as best they could, and updated us every 15 minutes (which was a little too frequently, but I like the effort).
I don’t really care if things go wrong once in a while. I make 50 mistakes before I get to work in the morning, so I won’t be judging others any time soon. The fact that they let us know what was happening and they always respond to my emails promptly means I won’t be jumping ship quite yet. If this site was a significant contributor to my income, I might be singing a different tune. Instead, it’s just an expensive hobby and I don’t mind a day off once in a while.
You can let fly all the comments you stored up yesterday, and I’ll try to squeeze out a post this afternoon.
