POI Factory was offline for a while today due to a network outage at our hosting company. The outage started around 9 am eastern and lasted approximately two hours.
EDIT: A second outage started around 1:45 pm eastern and lasted approximately 1.75 hours.
Sorry for the troubles.
Jonathan (aka JM)
Thanks for everything... I was about to do a traceroute to see where things were dying... didn't have to.
You guys are still the best out there Jonathan/MaryAnn.
Had me tring things with my comp thinking it was a internet explore problem at first.
It took me a little while to sort out the troubles too.
POI Factory has been using 1and1 (hosting company) since the start back in 2006. Outages have been few and far between, so I first suspected my computer or local network connection.
It appears the outage affected all of 1and1's dedicated servers, worldwide. They have over 70,000 servers, so a lot of web sites were involved.
miss the water 'til the well runs dry...WOW, what a scare! Thanks for being there...!!
It is a credit to JM that he was immediate on his posting on the outage.
Was wondering if it was going to be a long day.
Thank you for all you do for POI Factory.
We appreciated your efforts and dedication to this site.
I knew it wasn't my local connection or computer. I was starting to believe it might be the server/website was forever gone. If that would ever happen I would miss it like no other.
was there another disruption around 11:30ish AM PST? This site didn't respond at all.
A second outage started at about 1:45 pm eastern.
There's a posting from 1and1 on their facebook page that describes the outages: http://www.facebook.com/1and1
Sorry again for the troubles.
Thought it was your server, as all other web sites I frequent were working. Glad it's back up!!!
beyond your controll...not to worry!
is like caffeine for me. First thing in the morning is coffee and poi factory. Was concern that my computer had a virus. Glad everything is up and running.
Thank you for all the work maintaining the site.
no worries, it's good to go now
Apparently I missed it, I'm usually on the site 5 or 6AM CST and again late afternoon.
yesterday, so I missed it.
