What an amazing start to 2009. Everything was going well, when out of the blue my sites stopped responding on Jan 3rd. What happened afterwards was utter chaos, madness and tension at the highest level. Traffic to my sites surged and my dedicated server was not prepared for such a surge. The host came up a lot of reasons, but after 9 days i had enough of them.
Yep, all my sites were down for over 9 days. Eventually i decided enough is enough, can’t have more downtime and risk losing everything i had built up over the last few months, so ditched them and moved to a better host and a better server.
I guess in more than one way, this signifies the start of something new. Stuff that i had been pushing away are slowly coming to the surface, with a little help from close friends. Things that should have happened much earlier are finally(hopefully) seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. While it is exciting to be on the verge of a new journey, it sure is confusing and weighs me down with a lot of a pressure, responsibilites and questions for which i have no answers.
But, only when i embark on that i will find the answers and this time i am more than prepared to face it and i am pretty confident it will work out perfectly fine!
