Celebrating last-place finishes at the Olympics. Because they're there, and you're not.

Site Outage

A server issue at my suddenly less-wonderful hosting company, DreamHost, rendered all my web sites, including DFL, unavailable since, I think, about 8 AM UTC -- about 3 AM for me and midnight for DreamHost. (The issue was similar to this one.) I'm glad to have this site back up and running, but boy was I spitting nails in the meantime.

    Glad to see you're up and running again. Next time pay your hosting bill on time! Those of us in the Central European Time zone were lost this morning without your coverage.

    Bernhard, I appreciate the jokery, but, to play it straight for a moment, payments and billing weren't the issue here, but, I think, a badly configured web server.

    I'm appreciative of the fact that I have a European audience. I'm sure the guys at DreamHost can't figure out why I was apoplectic about an outage that from their perspective ran from midnight to 9 AM on a Sunday morning, but that's daytime in Europe!

    Sigh. These things always seem to happen at inconvenient times like these. I'm crossing my fingers that something like this won't happen again during the Olympics, but I know the way my luck usually turns.
