DreamHost Downtime

“DreamHost I love you, but you’re bringing me down.”

If you tried to visit my site in the next few hours, it probably wasn’t loading. DreamHost, the company doing my web hosting, had a problem at one of their data centers. You can see the block below when it was down (where I’m getting no visitors), from Google Analytics

On the day after I got two or three times as many site views as I had on any previous day, this is pretty inconvenient, and I’m probably going to switch hosts. Al3x recommended Gandi, and I’ll look more into it in the next couple of days.

(I really wish Google or Amazon offered the sort of hosting service I needed.. those are the only companies I would really trust.)

I apologize to everyone for the inconvenience. Hopefully it doesn’t happen again.
