…DYH is changing hosts?

Ahm bizzy sleepn.

Faithful DYH readers,

Good News: DidntYouHear.com is now on a new, and hopefully 20 times better host! (Full explanation of the reasons for the switch, along with impressions of the new host coming soon.)

Bad News: It took me over 6 hours to make the change, and now I need some sleep!

Thus, DYH is going to be a little lite on the updates today, but I’ll have some new stuff up ASAP, and the site should be fully functioning and normal again in about 24 hours. (For now, everything has to cycle through http://s18719.gridserver.com/)

Thanks for your understanding,


…DYH is back?

I fought the server and the…server won; I fought the server and the…server won.

Google ServerUnfortunately, 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.

…Rhys Millen is an injured motorsports legend?

There’s good news and bad news regarding Rhys Millen’s truck backflip.

The good news is that Red Bull has released another video about the jump:

The bad news is that on Rhys’ fourth cardboard box practice landing (he successfully landed three previous jumps into cardboard) he overshot the landing area and broke three vertebrae in his neck and compressed and broke two vertebrae in his back. Thus, no 360-degree Red Bull Experiment this year, though thankfully, Rhys will live to drive another day.

Anyone want to take his place?
