Saturday Morning Downtime


Got alerted by half a dozen emails, this morning, to let me know the server was down.
Something happened.. Not sure what.

Linode I wanted to give you a quick update regarding this maintenance. The physical host that your Linode resides on has experienced a hardware failure. To help resolve this issue as quickly as possible, the drives from this host will be transplanted to one of our standby hosts, which are available for events such as this.


Crikey!

The fix took roughly an hour to do, and the site was obviously down during all of that time, but thankfully everything seems to be in one piece.
*phew*

Thanks to all at Linode who discovered the fault whilst I was sleeping away, and got everything up and running without me having to lift a finger.

Interestingly, while the site was down, it took Shoebox and Browsercade down with it.
The sites are designed like web apps, in that they're meant to work fine when you're offline,
But... apparently if you're online, but the server isn't, then it gets stuck in a waiting loop, and never gets around to realising the server isn't there..
Hmmm...
