DOWNTIME

Last week some of you might have noticed this site was unavailable briefly on Monday. This was due to a major outage over at GoDaddy which hosts both my site and e-mail accounts. My blog was affected too much but my e-mail was probably unavailable for about an hour. Other GoDaddy customers were impacted much worse. In any case, I don’t do anything mission critical with this site nor my e-mail, so it was just a minor inconvenience to me. Despite this, GoDaddy gifted me a $7 credit to my account, which is good for two years. That’s not bad considering I didn’t even expect anything.

I know of a local video game company here in Vancouver who surprisingly uses GoDaddy for their corporate e-mails. I am almost certain Monday was a really bad day for them.
