Server: The non-appliance of science

I was up at 6am trying to wrestle back CollyLogic and The Libertines, and nearly gave up hope. I’ve just about had enough of our continuing problems with our Media Temple Appliance Server.

We have done everything we can to make sure that box is optimized, fast, and able to handle the big load it shoulders. It’s probably just a shoebox with some wires in it.

Anyway, sorry the sites were down for so long. Whatever happened, it wiped my config files, hence the no-show once the yanks managed to reboot the server manually. In the meantime, I can only apologise for the often slow download times, and the increasing blips in service. It’s not down to me, I assure you. And well done me for not swearing.
