In case you missed it


WordPress was inexplicably shut down today (affecting 10.2 million blogs, including this one) but the techs brought service back in only 110 minutes. Amazing response time.

    …”inexplicable” is the right word. But it turns out there’s an explication (holy Christ, that’s a real word?!), if you go back to Matt’s post there’s an update on what happened. Turns out, if they had taken the problem seriously from the start the downtime would’ve been a quarter of what it was.

    Gabriel– Saw that. Just the same, fixing it in under two hours is still impressive to me. The last time they crashed was four years ago, and that’s a pretty decent record.

    P.S. Nice to see you’re still lurking around these parts. I’m way overdue for a visit to SL.

    My favourite part was when U2 came out for the third encore.
