Richard Jones' Log: server issues

Sun, 27 Aug 2006

Sadly I'm having hosting issues with again. I think the whole thing must be jinxed. Apparently the machine I'm hosted on had disk problems yesterday. It was back yesterday afternoon (my time) minus about 2 days' data. That's bearable, since that means I only lost some diary entries and comments. Nothing critical to the running of the challenge.

My mailbox this morning had a slew of database connection errors from overnight, which seemed to be very temporary and certainly weren't around again this morning.

But now the machine's gone again. Totally. And theme voting for the challenge just started. My biggest concern is that there's people (including myself) who have booked annual leave for the challenge. Well, I guess it's time to look for backup hosting just in case... again :(
