The ups and downs of being up and down
Yesterday my excellent (I mean this sincerely) hosts over at http://www.epfamrs.org were having what’s euphamistically called “technical difficulties”. This meant that access to the server was kinda variable. By that I mean it was either slow, or completely dead.
This is what they put on their website:
- “Mirabel.epfarms.org” is having connection problems at this time due to an upstream provider. These problems manifest themselves as very poor connection speeds and unexpected disconnects. If you are seeing problems of this nature, please be patient while we work with our ISP to resolve this.
- We apologise for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact “email@example.com”. Thank you.
In other words, just stuff out of their control. That’s ok, Shit happens, etc. It was frustrating though because I’m in the middle of coding, and it’s kinda handy to be able to actually see what you’re working on
Hopefully, all will be resolved today.
