After a couple days scrambling around after the site crashed on Monday, I am proud to say that all of the dashPunk Media sites are up and running better than ever.
An error in our caching software at Project: Shadow caused the sites to at first become unreachable, then the databases were corrupted. I won’t bore you with all the details, but it took some time to diagnose the problem and work out a solution.
What did we do?
Since the sites were down, we postponed the podcast and all other work to focus our efforts.
We relocated dashPunk.com to its own grid of servers. This marks the end of the technical relationship between Project: Shadow and dashPunk.
- Project: Shadow will become a resource site, with links, primers, and information about Speculative Fiction.
- Project: Shadow Informant will continue on December 1st.
- Project: Shadow HQ will continue as the social network for all of the dashPunk Media sites.
- dashPunk will continue to as the blog you have come to know and love.
You should notice an improvement in the sites’ response time and performance.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but in the end, this was a growth pain. The future looks bright.
