My Apologies for the Downtime


This morning I decided to move to a more powerful server. Regrettably, I put my faith in my web host’s “one-click” automated migration service. It was supposed to copy the site to the new server and then point the domain to the new server. The copy procedure failed, but even worse, the domain still got pointed to the new (broken) server, resulting in the site going offline. It took a while to get the original server back up, and another 4 hours for the DNS settings to re-propagate across the internet.

I’m sorry about any inconvenience this may have caused. I’ll try to be more cautious in the future.

    Thanks for contributing to this community. I’ve always been a big Amazon fan, but I never realized until recently how awesome the FireTV is over my old Roku!

    You should make a afhd “Tablet” sister site with the new Tablets coming out next month. :-)
