DreamHost Outage

DreamHost experienced some pretty significant downtime yesterday. It started with network maintenance. When they brought a switch back online, it was missing configuration files. Seems kinda silly for a hosting company to not have backups of EVERYTHING.

Anyway, longren.org and various other sites I host at DreamHost were down for a good part of the day. Even the DreamHost Status blog was unavailable.

It had been a long time since a significant DreamHost outage prior to this event. Hopefully it will be a long time before we see an outage like this again.
