My webhost, HostGator, experienced a major network outage at their data center in Provo. Unfortunately, that’s where my servers are located.
The outage took down thousands of site while HostGator worked on the problem for most of the day. This is the first outage I have ever experienced with HostGator. Normally, they are an extremely reliable host with great customer support. I’m sure they will find out what caused the outage and take steps to see that it doesn’t happen in the future.
During the outage, I didn’t really have much to do except hang around on Facebook and go for a nice long bike ride. I hope the blog being down didn’t inconvenience anyone. I’ll be resuming my regular schedule posting shortly.
