A little routine maintenance… 6 hours later


When I received the email the other day from my hosting service, Surpass Hosting, saying that they were installing a new power source but it shouldn’t affect their service, I thought to myself, “yeah, right.” I did resolve to make a post on Saturday saying that my site might be down today but I never got around to it.

The possible momentary interruption lasted for six hours today. And from what I can see, they are still having problems.

The good news is my site is back up. It came back up shortly after I started making fun of the problem on Facebook. I don’t know if that had an effect, but it made me feel better.

The bad news is that they are supposed to be doing more maintenance on Saturday, 2 AM – 4 AM EST. So for you night owl readers, the site might be down for five minutes… or hours.

In the meantime, I am open to suggestions. Surpass was cheap and I got what I paid for. I am now to the point where my desire to switch has overcome my laziness. However, I’m still looking for cheap.

So if you have any suggestions for a hosting service, I’m all ears.
