We’ve apparently down since 10AM EDT. We’re working on it. We’re sorry. Hopefully we can resolve this quickly. Greatest Apologies.
We’re having issues right now. I don’t think it’s isloated to us. Another website on the same cloud setup / host is also down. Oddly enough, so is Cincinnati.com. Either way, we know we’re down and do not freak out about it. We’ll be back.
We’re having issues right now. We’re looking into it. Take a deep breath, we’ll be back.
Still wondering if we’re back. We are. Why not check us out?
Something bad happened. How bad, I’m not sure, but rest assured that your data is not lost. It’s like I was saying the exact same crap 365 days ago. It is not an isloated occurrence to just our server, and our host is working diligently to get things running. I really, really hope to be running by later tonight, but such prospects are dimming. This almost makes me want to cry. Den, I’m sorry.
Still working, hope to be back later tonight.
Why hello there. How’s it going? As you might have noticed, we’re still down. Things are taking a bit longer than planned, and really that’s just fantastic. We’re trying really, really hard… blah blah blah.
Forget about it. We’ll be back eventually. To pass the time, here’s something completely unrelated to the site to kill time as I wait for the site to return.
364 days ago began the uber tumultuous time of going from a shared host to a dedicated host. It was really a fun time, truly, absolutely fun. Almost as fun as talking to one of my friends here in Maryland. I kid, I kid. But, something ominous lurked in the downtime, and it was quickly apparent what had caused our site to be down for almost two months – Zombies.
You see, the zombies have stalked our servers for several years now, beginning first on Lunar Pages where they killed a server admin, causing them to say that Yabb was killing their shared host. What a dirty malicious lie. We know it was the zombies, and we knew that we were no longer welcome there.
Times were good at our next host up until we made the jump to mySQL. That’s when they found us. We thought, hoped, and prayed that we were free from their reach, but we were wrong. It was innocent enough at first, they killed a server farm tech, which led mySQL to go wonky on us. But, as time passed the zombies got more aggressive, killing more techs until that fateful day. On April 1, 2008, the zombies killed the IX Webhosting Server Admin. Sure, they said that SMF was killing their server, but we knew that was a lie. So, once again, we were on our way to a new host.
Our new host wasn’t without his own unfortunate run-ins, but like any good server admin, our new host knew what to do. Sure, the zombies distracted him and caused him to let our site kill the VPS, but he was able to recover. See, our new host was Canadian, and like every other good Canadian citizen our host held something dear to his heart – a 12 guage shotgun. Things were running great until last night. Turns out he forgot to stop by the gun store on the way home.
So, here we are today, and our site is down. Fear not faithful members! Our host has ammo, and once again he’ll be able to keep the zombies at bay. There’s quite a few of them out there, so have patience, and know that some time really soon RF Generation will be back, zombie free.
