I came by at about 12am or so and found the site down. Did anybody else see this? It went back up shortly after but I think the total downtime was about 2 hours or so...

it was down around 10 eastern, so 2 hours sounds about right

Do you know what happened? I didnt get to see the board down, but I did stop by and it was awfully slow around 12am MST...

How much BW do you go through a month? Whats your hosting costs like?

If you need to, I know some good places for very reliable servers with 10+ independent links, all about a gigabit. My server is with them, and they actually had their power go out a few weeks ago, and they were running on gens for 4 days straight.. 0 downtime. really cool.

I haven't actually had time to go through things and find out how much bandwidth we're going through. The costs aren't very expensive yet so I'm not worried at the moment. But, tell me about the company you're dealing with. I'm sure it wont be long before we need more bandwidth and drive space...

Yeah, it was down about 9:30 Canuck time. That meant I actually had nothing to do and I was forced to TALK to my Fiance! :banghead2 :crying:

Cool.

The company I use is called RackShack. http://www.rackshack.net

They're in Texas, and what they do is just server wholesale. They have lots of servers, they have lots of bandwidth, and they slice it out. I have a Redhat 7.2 server running there, with a 100mbit pipe to the Internet, 400GB xfer per month, for $99. That's with a 60gb IDE hard disk too. No back up services or anything.. but you could do a remote incremental backup and that would be as good.

I've got nothing to say but good things about these guys.

Thank you. I'll be referring to this post when the time comes for more bandwidth.. That's insanely inexpensive!
