Server is fine
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:40:37 AM »
Jake and kermi hit me up this morning because the site was not accessible.  The server is fine.  My domain registrar, for the second time, suspended one of my domains because the contacts weren't verified.  That's been corrected.

I saw it too but didn't complain 'cause I figured someone else would or you'd notice.  Good turn around town.

Related anecdote that nots relevant to anyone here. I used to use an app called mySugr for monitoring blood sugar. They had a web portal you could log into. I tried going there the other day and it just timed out with a redirect error. I contacted customer support and they were like "oh, we got rid of the web portal last December."  But there's still a big "log in" button on their website that goes to that site and there's no messaging saying it doesn't work. and the site (on a subdomain of their main domain) just hangs and eventually times out with a redirect error. No real error message from them or even a 404.  Just a bad customer experience.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

leave a mark with chalk on the mailbox at the corner.  Then wait at the coffee shop.  a man with a yellow hat will slip you an envelope with a key. the key opens a locker at the bus depot with a phone in it.  When the phone rings, await further instructions to find Kermi.

I'm just surprised he'd be one of the first to notice the site is down!

He's still alive.  Here's the proof.  And apparently he just happened to pop in for the few hours that this affected us.

I noticed it and chatted him to confirm. He then connected with Ben on a three way. Bam!

Let's not say 'three way' so casually......
