Site Issues Caused By Media Temple Meltdown

4

Hey all,

So some of you probably noticed that on Saturday and Sunday the site was completely gone. Even I couldn’t get into it to post a message.

The reason? Our hosting service, Media Temple, had a complete meltdown that caused loss of service for nearly 25% of the smaller sites that they host. Unfortunately Donklephant was one of the those and nothing could be done about it except wait around and hope they’d fix the problem. This morning, about an hour ago, the problem was solved and here we are.

Still, you’ll probably hear from me in a couple days about moving the site to a new hosting service. Any suggestions?

Thanks for understanding and sorry for the downtime.
