Whew - What an ordeal.

Some day this week when the smoke finally clears, I will give a full accounting of what just occurred.

Moral of the story: we will have a real world workable disaster plan in place by the end of the month. It will specifcy that WebmasterWorld will not be offline for no more than 4 hrs maxium regardless of the circumstances.

Looking forward to it. It should read like a saga - or maybe a horror story!

Will you pay members for not being able to post pro rata to their estimated lost post count? ;)

BBC TV (UK) today reported a rather strange pick up in IT productivity across the globe...

Thanks - no matter how difficult it was to rewrite about a meg of code, the good news is that we have a new top of the line server that should work considerably better than the old one.

Don't be surprised if you see some glitches this week.

And I thought it was only the AdSense stats that I checked every hour.

Take WW away for a few days, and I learn that I have two addictions.

Welcome back. You were missed.

Man was I glad to see the home page back up and running.
Every time I tried to get here and got one of the messages it reminded me of the fiasco I went through when an x-host lost my whole site and all of the clients sites in an upgrade.

I had automatic back ups set up by FTP for html and data and recovered in great shape, once I moved all the sites to another host.

I think it is something we all go through once -- and hopefully only once! Looking forward to reading about the saga. Glad you are back!

This will be a great topic at the forthcoming conference in Las Vegas. [pubcon.com] I think we can all learn something from this.

Well done Brett!

I feel for you Brett and Hawkgirl. My former hosting facility had a problem and it shut me down for 24 hours. I cant even imagine what you went through.

All the other forums will now be reporting a drastic drop in bandwidth. Seriously, I would love to see how no WW impacted others' traffic.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Thanks to all for all of the hard work under pressure. Did the WW coffee maker break under the heavy load?

Congratulations Brett!

Not only did you suffer a serious disruption and recover from it, you managed to provide an interim site for WW members to use and presented a reasoned and rational face to the members and the public.

Quite an achievement. Again, congratulations.

This new server is very snappy.... I predict that in a few weeks WW being offline will be a distant memory and everyone will still be appreciating the speed at which the pages now load.

I didnt realize how much weekend lurking I did, but now I know - and my bar tabs exponential increase really showed it...

Webmasterworld saves me hundreds of dollars a weekend ;-)
