Can't get to Kitelife, Revkites, or my Kitelife hosted email or website right now.  Has the server been eating spicy food again JB??

Kite Classifieds is also down.  I have sent JB a text message.  I just re-checked it and all 3 sites are back up again.  Thanks John.

I was running some server duties last night before bed, it didn't restart correctly overnight.  >:(

All is well, glad to know y'all are looking. :)

There are some neat ping utilities for iPhone that constantly monitor sites. Won't keep bad things from happening, but at least you'll know...

I have such services in place already, via email, picked up on my iPhone...

Doesn't help if you're counting sheep though. :)

You think it is OK to sleep when people that don't are trying to log on and waste time.....

JB - you are probably busy sheep counting, but it looks like the server is having issues again.  Revkites, my personal website and kitelife hosted email all seem to be unavailable right now.

Any update?  Is something upsetting the server?

JB, appreciate the quick response.  Hope you have some luck with your server company.  I know what it can be like chasing these guys, as we have our company software hosted and sometimes they have glitches too.

Good luck,

Mark

We've been with our current datacenter for several years now, on a first name basis with the owner, they take our trouble tickets at all hours... That's almost unprecedented these days, we've been very happy with them. :)

That's great John.  Always good to find such service.

Bit more than that this time, the primary hard drive failed and is being replaced as we speak... Big drive, takes a bit to copy over from our back up, may be a couple of hours.

Thank goodness for weekly *and* daily back ups.

Last back up is from May 25, everything is in process... Big drive, we're restoring as quickly as possible.

Your site is back online Mark, as is Revkites and the majority of our other clients... Still restoring Kitelife (HUGE site), and please understand that forum posts, etc which were made yesterday afternoon and evening will be missing due to the fact our daily backup was made in the morning.
