*tap, tap* Is this thing on?

Hi folks;

If you noticed that Futurismic was unreachable for a large part of the last twelve hours or so, please accept my apologies – unexplained downtime is just one of the many extras that come bundled with our web hosting service! Everything appears to be back to normal now, though (touch wood).

If you didn’t notice Futurismic was down… well, you can pretend you never saw this post, right? Right.

Normal service – as normal as it ever gets round here, anyway – should be restored soon… just about as soon as this hangover clears up, in fact (this really hasn’t been the best Friday ever). Thanks for your patience. 🙂

  1. No, I won’t pretend I didn’t see this. In fact, I am greatly offended by this post. How dare you tell me the site was down when I wasn’t around! I’m reporting you to the Agency!

  2. Paul,

    I hate to tell you but, it’s Saturday 19 September at 12:35 PST and your site is incredibly slow. If I weren’t so anxious to see it, I would have given up. I didn’t time it but I think it took close to a minute to load the full page. Then, it wasn’t formatted properly to I had to to a re-load. It looks fine now.

  3. Hi Rick, thanks for letting me know. It seems to be an ongoing problem, and I’ve informed the hosting company about it; I suspect someone else on the same shared machine is hogging processor cycles. Unfortunately there’s not much I can do about that but wait for the hosts to sort it out… and swift responses aren’t par for the course in these situations, sadly. Please stick with us, we’ll be back to normal just as soon as I can get us there.
