Of Updates and Outages


Why actually it was today!

I updated WordPress to 2.0.4 yesterday, and right in the middle of the update, we had a major site outage. My host, Dreamhost, who (or whom?) I usually love, is to blame. They took over 5 hours to respond to the outage and when they responded, they couldn’t bother to tell me why the outage occurred, nor did they apologize, instead they just asked me 3 or 4 times to “check our status page” (which I was already doing every 5 minutes). Anyway, that’s my rant for today, and if you were stuck at home looking at an empty pot and a packet of ramen and wondering what to do with it, blame them!!!
