META: Site issues

As you could tell, the site had a lot of issues yesterday, and I sincerely apologize. Believe me, I am just as frustrated as you. DreamHost informed me that the hardware hosting HeroMachine.com (and lots of others) failed, and they had to move everything to a new machine. They are restoring everything from backup.

I am able to get on just fine now both as the WordPress admin and as a general visitor, so please let me know in this thread if you cannot or if there’s something missing.

In the future, you might also want to bookmark the HeroMachine Facebook page, as that’s where I post site status updates when it’s down.

  1. Correction: Things are working properly except for posting of images. And some funkiness when I go to make a post. So expect some slowness today as those things work themselves out.

  2. What? Difficulties in loading the page? Broken connections? I didn’t see that at all! ;)

  3. I may have been interfered with during edit–I’m not sure you allow links to be subbed during a pop quiz. I tried to swap for a new and improved version of my entry, and it didn’t work. –‘T’sall good, but thought you might benefit from knowing.

  4. Um, let me amend that. Just in case you didn’t know, I have been unable to reach forums or hmlab since that last post. Posting seems to take longer in general, too. Maybe the new server is just bogged down? Hope so.
