Everything’s Working Again

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.

What happened?

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.

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.
