Sorry for yet another downtime…

This site has been down so often lately that I feel obliged to provided at least a little explanation. The previous downtime occurred due to some obscure server crash, which our host’s “monitoring” service, if we may call this crap this way, took over 6 hours to DETECT, even though the server had totally and brutally stopped all traffic (it took us 5 minutes to fix it, once we noticed the issue…). Tonight’s downtime was due to our host “upgrading” its network, which apparently went very wrong. AGAIN, the host did NOT notify us of the issue, which we discovered via our own, manual “monitoring”…

I was planning to move the site to another host, I just did it now. Hopefully there should be no more of such problems now… And we’re back in Germany 🙂 which sounds like a good thing with all the privacy-killing crap going on in France. Feel free to suggest any decent third-party monitoring tool, I think I’ll set up one of those…
