Slotblog was offline late this afternoon due to a server issue for maybe 45 mins starting about an hour or so ago, but the fine folks at the webhosting company diagnosed and resolved the issue on the server where Slotblog resides very, very promptly.

 

If anyone is looking for a truly great webhost, I'd be more than happy to recommend MDDHosting at the highest level. Long-time viewers should know how infrequently Slotblog is offline and that is largely due to Michael Denny and the staff at MDDHosting.

Well, if you think so...

I don't have a high opinion of Dell equipment due to having to maintain a lot of it for fifteen years or so.

So that's what was behind the Zen message. Some of the forums worked, some of the forums didn't. If you got out, when you tried to log back on, all you got was the message about two Zen programs that needed something done to them..

The nice thing about my webhost is they always tell me what happened. An automated upgrade program removed a server helper app by mistake and they simply had to reinstall that app, Zend Guard. Have no idea what it's purpose is and don't want to know.

I don't selfhost Slotblog just so I don't have to deal with that kind of stuff.

Seeing as this is a slot racing blog, I would bet the hacking probably was done by a fat guy on his bed! :wacko2:

What time? For how long? I was asleep at 1:21 AM. Maybe the first time, they put a temporary patch in place and you saw them making the permanent fix.

Yeah, I was in the rack them. No problem before I crashed and no problem this morning. If Slotblog was down during the wee hours, I have no way knowing until the uptime report comes end at the end of the month.

It was running a litle slow later yesterday and maybe the server got rebooted during the night. Stab in the dark...

LOL.

 

Yes, Zip, unfortunately I look at him everyday in the mirror. Only I do most of my hacking on the slot car track! :D
