Site Down (Again)
The site was completely down yesterday (yet again). The server had a blown raid drive and the hosting company, while working hard to fix it, has no contingency plan, so we were S.O.L. for about 20 hours. This seems to happen with large traffic increases to the site, but not because of them. Every time our Alexia ranking jumps or we get some new paid Google ads, the site seems to go down for an entire day due to no fault of our own.
Anyway, you get what you pay for, I guess. Maybe we should circle every game and tutorial with 100’s of ads like the speculator sites do and then we could afford to pay for better hosting as you-all mistakenly click the ads while trying to play – that will never happen, don’t worry.
