Aaaaaaand, we’re back.
If you’ve tried to visit the site in the last few days, you’ve no doubt noticed that we’ve been having some technical difficulties. Dan’s tweet last week tried to shed a little light on the subject, allowing Twitter to prove it’s utility (really, you should follow us), but allow me to explain…
Presumably because of you, our ever-increasing band of loyal readers, our former webhost decided that we were using too many resources and suspended our account last Wednesday. It was not the first time they shut us down, but we’ve made sure it will be the last. To do our best to prevent future downtime, we decided to switch to a new host and in doing so learned even more reasons we should have made the change long ago.
Without getting into the gory details, it was a complicated process that probably shouldn’t have taken as long as it did. We’re still learning as we go with some of these things. Unfortunately, some comments posted Wednesday evening on Patrick’s undisputed stance on the ‘Mr. Big Shot’ moniker weren’t able to be included in the move. I was able to track down copies of them, however, and have reposted them under the article (here).
Though a bit painful, ultimately this is a good move. We appreciate your patience.
It’s good to be back.
