Hosting Matters – my web host – went down last night, so I wasn’t able to get to the site until this morning. As you’ve probably noticed, this has delayed the posting of the new comic.
It will be up later today.
This is the second night in a row my site was down. On Wednesday night my database stopped working for about six hours, and then came back without explanation. Last night nearly every site on Hosting Matters vanished for a good nine hours or so due to some major connectivity problems.
This sort of thing happens from time to time, but two nights in a row of total site failure is pretty upsetting. I really hope things are back to normal now.
LATER: I want to add that I didn’t even know what was going on. I had to visit Chizumatic to get the story. It was kind of strange reading about what was going on with my own site on other blogs. It was like watching TV at a friend’s house and seeing a news story about my house catching on fire.
This is the second major outage they’ve had which has been attributed to Level3. What do you do when your provider is great, but your provider’s provider sucks?
