    The datacenter will be upgrading some core routers on July 17. This will ONLY affect the IF website and forum, and not client accounts. So if you can't find us for an hour or so that day, that's why. :)

    Just wondering, why does the website go down and not the clients at LA? Are they hosted at a different datacenter or something?

    Completely seperate servers, completely separate datacenters, yes. :)

    The 1st Rule of Good Hosting: Never host your own site in the same datacenter or on the same server as client sites. :D:D Otherwise when everything goes down, everything goes down.

    Ya, that's a good thing to have, but quite a bit of people don't follow it..

    Well isn't it more important for your own website to be up? Your website's going down instead of the client's. (well maybe not if u offer a SLA, but this is free)

    That's definitely important too! :D If I really wanted to, I could just mirror it to another server, but with an hour downtime, it just isn't worth it. If it was going to be a day or something, then yes, it would be worth it to mirror it.

    Ehh.. not really worth the hour..

    Funny thing is that they're trying to keep the server up in case something in their network fails and yet they can't keep it up while they're messing with it. Why take something down when it's working fine...

    Kitten party!!!!!

    ha ha ha ha!

    Yes, we are back. It lasted a little longer than the hour they said it would. NodePing clocked it at 115 minutes. But ah well. A little bit of downtime here is fine. Client accounts? We don't believe in that. :p
