I nā mahina he nui aku nei, ua mahalo wau i Dreamhost's transparency when it came to the disaster where their clients' sites were down for quite an extended period.
This week, I had my own fun! After getting the most hits ever, having my site go down (due to some MySQL settings), I implemented caching on the site. I have a 100Gb of bandwidth (I never come close to using) and 10Gb of space. It's all alloted neatly for my clients into some nice packages that I can easily govern.
ʻO ka mea i maopopo ʻole iaʻu ka nui o ka hakahaka e loaʻa ai iaʻu i ka wā i huli ai wau i ka cache me kaʻu waihona. Ua pāpālua wau i ka hakahaka o ka kikowaena a lawe mai i kaʻu pūnaewele i kahi kūlou. E like me ka laki, loaʻa wau i kahi hālāwai kiʻekiʻe kiʻekiʻe kiʻekiʻe me nā poʻe kūʻai aku koʻikoʻi nui loa mai ke kūlanakauhale ʻo Indianapolis no kā mākou Review Book Book Marketing.
So… with my site down and many of my friends calling, emailing, and instant messaging me, I was oblivious to all of it. I got back to my desk and had messages, calls, IM's, text messages…. oops.
Mahalo iā ʻoukou āpau i hoʻāʻo e kiʻi i ka paʻa iaʻu! Nui koʻu mahalo iā ia. I ka manawa aʻu i ʻike ai i ka pilikia, ua neʻe koke wau i ka pūnaewele i kahi pūʻulu ʻoi aku ka nui me ka lumi no ka hoʻonui a me MySQL max threading. E kala mai no ka manawa hāʻule.
