« La Cabana | Main | Thought What? »


Well, let me tell ya. It turns out Movable Type suffered a big snafu in coding and many, many people who depend on blog-love got aced out for the last couple of days. These things happen, I suppose. The good news is I'm all better and we can continue the party. Maestro, strike up the band!

Glad you're back.


Yeah, scalzi was bitching about it too.

Most of the time it's not the softeware, or the interface, it's the server.

My bro's a sys-admin, and while I was doing work for him one time, while he was working at another company, and I crashed at his place, is friggen beaper would go off constantly, and at first I would wake him up to let him know.

He explained to me that servers down CONSTANTLY, but for very short periods, the concern comes when they are down for a long time, (more than 3 hours. 3 HOURS!?!?!) But he also explained that there are a crapload of servers, in general, that serve specific needs, and that even 3 hours is a nothing.

Kinda like triage.

I don't know what your specific issue was, but unless it was your own software, I wouldn't worry, it happens all the time.

BTW big bro was working for an energy company, if he wasn't worried about a 3 hour shutdown, then an art blogger shouldn't be.

Just say'n.


Hmm, that explains why none of my recent comments appeared...


I question the timing. But then, I've gotten used to the black helicopters circling overhead in 'whisper mode'.
