I am so sorry that we were down today. I am mad, but what can I do. We were at the mercy of the hosting company, who was at the mercy of the phone company, who was at the mercy of some idiots that cut into 72 fiber optic cables between my town and Birmingham, Alabama.

Anyhow, this fiber cut took the hosting company down. I am dissappointed, but for 7 years, I have used this company and have only had problems that were the fault of heavy traffic or my own mistakes. Not to mention they are local and it’s great keeping that big payment in the local economy. I am just wondering why the ring that carries the traffic from the host to the hub in Birmingham was not on a protected ring that switches paths when a fiber is cut. Oh well.

Anyhow, it’s great to be back. I was really having withdrawals. :)
