    We're back up

    I'm sorry HacksDen was down so long. I assure you HacksDen isn't going anywhere, but there was a hiccup when we moved from Media Temple to DigitalOcean for hosting. While the problem turned out to be simple (thankfully @ShadowSonic2 figured it out in a few minutes), I spent a lot of time on customer service and checking with my old friend Google trying to get it back up.


    PS: Sometime in the next couple days, we may go down for as long as 10 minutes, due to emergency maintenance by DigitalOcean.

    I was fearing the worst, it was like a bad dream. Glad to see hacksden back, now if we could get somebody else to join and post.

    A lot of people sent me messages on temp asking if it was gone too. I doubt they know it's back up yet.

    Link to emergency maintenance? I thought this was from the DNS Records not being configured when the site was transferred.

    It was. I got an email a little bit after we went up saying they were replacing some network switches.
    Hello,

    The DigitalOcean network team has identified an issue with firmware running on a number of network switches within NYC3. This issue is causing intermittent loss of connectivity to customer droplets.

    While the issue has been confirmed only in a subset of racks, we will be upgrading all switches running the affected firmware in NYC3. This maintenance will result in approximately ten minutes of downtime per rack at some point within the maintenance window as individual switches are upgraded.

    Maintenance window:
    2015-08-27 22:00 EDT - 2015-08-28 02:00 EDT
    2015-08-28 02:00 UTC - 2015-08-28 06:00 UTC

    We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to improve the reliability of our network.

    Jeremy
    DigitalOcean Network Team

    We weren't affected by that. When I checked the DNS Records, they were never configured when whoever moved the domain name's DNS Servers over. I was also able to access the droplet throughout the entire outage (even though, I didn't think of going to WHS to PM you )

    I know we had access to it because I was trying to fix it on my own for a whole week while you ignored my cries for help. I even bought a new domain (hacksden.space) and tried to set that up myself as a temporary solution.
