Back up after a major outage

wheat's picture

All,

Our hosting provider had some major hardware issues that took down all of my sites from sometime on Sunday until just now. In fact, I'm still reinstalling some of mine, but I wanted to get bassplaying.com back up as soon as possible. So chime in and test things out. If you find anything odd, post a comment here. And welcome back. I'll have a fuller explanation after I have the other sites in the wheatdesign.com empire restored.

Cheers,

Wheat

Here are some details about the outage.

Yeah, when email goes down, how do we stay in touch? You contacted me via MySpace, which worked just fine. Facebook and Twitter also have direct messaging capabilities. The various instant messaging services would work, too.

What I need to do is find a way to produce an email blast list from the BP membership data and keep a current copy offline so I can use it to let people know when things go dark. :)

One wierd thing is the messages no longer show who posted up by the date. I can't easily tell who's posting anymore. It's kind of frustrating. I don't know if it's related to the recent problem.

Ah, yeah. That is weird. I did some tweaks to the profile. I'll have to double-check those and maybe reverse them.

In the meantime, please sign your posts.

So how're you doing?

It's been a bit slow here lately so I've just been dropping in once in a while. I just got the new BiaB v2009. There's well over 100 new Real instruments. It's really great. I want to do up another BassIAB tune soon. Maybe I'll get a chance over the holidays. You think it's worth it?

i vote...

YES!! i am ready to do another one.....

Hi Greg. Ok, I'm up for

Hi Greg. Ok, I'm up for doing a BassIAB tune. I just tried out one of the new Stones style guitars and I was blown away. I think PGMusic figured out how to put Ronny Wood into a box. It was just like jamming with him and Charlie. If I can find a Keith style guitar in there I can do a 'live' sounding Stones jam.

There's also a Dire Straits style guitar that I want to play around with as well. So lots of great possibilities.

So I'll get to it over the holidays and post something as soon as I can.

Doing well. Staying busy with all manner of things. Now that the holidays are here, I might have some time to tinker with my sites a bit. :)

Yeah, who knew I'd need a disaster recovery plan for a hobby project? I guess I need to come up with some sort of opt-in email list for folks who want to know what the hell is up when things like this happen. Of course, email was down, too, so maybe I need phone numbers.

I did some status updates via my Twitter profile page. So, if you're a regular, bookmark that one.

And Merry Christmas if I don't get around to saying it elsewhere.
