Site Down & Out
Yesterday was a very long day. All of my sites went down around 7:00 AM and I finally learned from Blast, my hosting company, that the server had died and they were moving everything over to a new server. Through what surely must have been heroic efforts last night, their top techie (who majored in English in college) breathed life back into the serve around 2:00 AM this morning, so things are up...for most of us.
My understanding is that the maintenance message that they posted yesterday afternoon is stuck in many ISP's DNS, and it may take a few hours for it to clear. I'm having to go in with an IP number right now, until Earthlink clears its DNS.
At anyrate, Blast will be moving the site over to the same server that runs their home site, so Blogmeister will soon be much more stable. The current server is still limping but they brought it into their offices where they they have the defibulator ready for action. My apologies for all who were left in the lurch over this problem. I know that many of your lesson plans are now depending on Blogmeister, and that is the guiding force behind assuring the highest stability for the server.
