Oooh, so that’s what the big shiny red button do.
Frequent visitors of this website may have wittingly discovered the somewhat lack of website over the past few weeks. Firstly, I would like to apologize if you were in any way traumatized by the outage.
I was planning to blame Amazon S3 for the downtime but that might be a little unfair because I actually don’t use their service. Blaming other people is always fun.
The slightly more boring truth is that a server software update corrupted the kernel (yes the server runs Linux) whilst I was in Denmark on holiday celebrating my team’s first-prize win in Microsoft’s Imagine Cup world finals in Paris (more about that later). Needless to say the fun I was having outweighed my desire to fix the server. Some of you may have even witnessed the fun I had discovering my inner-Pirate from a placeholder photo in the past couple of days (credit to my Denmark host and server operator for the captions).
Now everything is back to normal, sort of.
