I fought the server and the…server won; I fought the server and the…server won.
Unfortunately, due to a “problem with the DNS records for didntyouhear.com” this site has been down for the past four days, and anyone who visited (myself included) was handed little more than a 500 Error page.
In addition to the site going down, this DNS error also knocked out my email server, so for everyone who sent me a kind (and much appreciated) email to let me know that the site was down, I want to say thanks, and let you know that your message just came though, so I apologize for my delayed response.
The good news is that the error is now fixed, and Didn’t You Hear will be returning with full force (and then some) on Monday; so if you’ve lost all hope, then please come back on Monday for a reminder of why you started to visit DYH in the first place.
For any of you with blogs of your own out there, just remember: Backups are your friend. I try to backup as frequently as possible, but I still don’t do it enough, and all I could think of during this issue was, “Man, what if this error manages to clean out my site’s data as well”.
Thankfully it didn’t, but the potential was definitely there, so remember: Backup, Backup, Backup.
