Post subject:  Longest downtime ever

Last night the site was unaccessible for about 12 hours. The problem was with the host, and affected many sites. This is the final statement from Hostgator support after the problem had been found:


Just a quick update on the work we’ve done to restore our network. Our Networks Operation team uncovered a bug in firmware utilized in our vendor’s hardware that caused the network issues, which impacted some of our customers. We worked closely with the vendor to establish and implement a bug fix. That fix is now being executed and propagating across the network. During this rollout, you may find some performance inconsistencies, which will resolve fairly quickly. Our entire team remains engaged and committing to fully restoring services and performance for all impacted customers.


After I noticed the problem, I used the Expecting Rain Facebook page to inform visitors about the problem. If you are on Facebook, you can go to https://www.facebook.com/expectingrain next time you can't access Expecting Rain.

Thank you for letting us know and keeping us up to date, Karl Erik.

We've all just had a salutary reminder of what life would be like without the wonderful Expecting Rain.

Thanks for the update, KE.
At least they were considerate not to have the outage during a live set-list!

I missed the downtime and didn't even know it! I picked a wonderful day to be busy.

had I been trying to log on, I may have well joined a Kenny Rogers fan forum and my life would have been forever altered.

Er, um, Sir thickboy - the ER birthday thread is over here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=79560&hilit=birthday
(not that I would ever, ever dare to correct a senior contributor of your outstanding reputation :oops: - if it's your decision to post this in the Longest downtime ever, so be it - that's where it belongs)
