Well, That Wasn’t Fun

Well, that was unfun... my server was down for several days. As you can see, it's back now, but it was not an enjoyable experience having my online presence evaporate. Unlucky server issues were compounded by less-than-forethoughtful decisions on my part, which extended the outage beyond what it should have been. Lessons learned.

Much thanks to my server hosting company, Peak Web Hosting for their support (even on 5am Saturday morning!). You guys rock.

To everyone trying to download my Lightroom goodies, my apologies.


Comments so far....

Darn squirrels!

Good to have you back. We (the Lightroom community) were wondering…

I was just reinstalling after a Snow Leopard update, and was looking for the latest versions of your plugins this weekend. Glad it’s back.

I hate the sound of a quiet server first thing in the morning! – Glad you’re back ;)

Good to see your site live and kicking again. For the past days Google cache saved my day ;-)
Suggestion: include static copies of the plug-in info (e.g. preset templates, meta data wrangler) in the distributed zips. Your descriptions are some sort of manual after all.

Glad to see that you’re back ! I just registered and updated the “Flickr export to” plugin !

Glad to see you back. I thought maybe the downtime was due to the unsustainable traffic load of ladies downloading your pictures of me.

I have been off and on for a few days, getting all my data and only some of my apps migrated from my old mac to my zippy new iMac, then trying to get 3 computers to play nice on our network. New desk chairs came today, so I’m sittin’ pretty. A handful of pictures are uploaded to my flickr acct, but I’ll put some on the blog today. Gotta run the film down to the processing center. I’m hoping those came out OK.
