Technical Difficulties on Petopia [Updated]

[edit] As of Wednesday evening, Petopia is back up. The site is currently rather slow because we’re still working out some tweaks with our server, but hopefully we’ll have that smoothed out soon.

[edit #2] And most of the slowness should now be eliminated thanks to our wonderful server admin Jon. (Thanks, Jon!)

If you see any problems, here or with Petopia, please let me know. Thank you again, everyone, for your patience!


Petopia, the parent website for this blog, is having some technical difficulties today and is currently offline.

We’re working hard on getting Petopia back up as quickly as possible. In the meantime, feel free to use the backup site for your pet needs.

Thank you for your patience as we work through these problems!

    gizzmo: Because Petopia is not my site. I manage it, but it was founded and still belongs to a woman called Brash Endeavors (aka Brash, aka Bamoo — thus the address).

    In addition, until very recently the backup site would crash if more than a small portion of Petopia users tried to access it at once. :>

    The backup site is on better hardware now, though, and I am talking to Brash about possibly moving Petopia over there also. If that happens we’ll just point both addresses at the same place.

    The .. fifth? time in my recent memory. Believe me, these episodes give me severe headaches. :> But we’ll get it fixed as fast as we can, and hopefully prevent it from happening again.

    I write for a blog myself, which is why I haven’t been as often on this site. You have my sympathies. Right now, our site has had its second move in recent the scant ten months that it’s been up. In fact, the moves were because we kept overloading the host’s servers.

    I certainly understand the pain that goes along with running a site.

    Take care, and good luck.

    My fault this is taking longer than expected to get back up, I have been away from the computer most of the day and did not realize we had another “situation” today. In the past we’ve been able to get back online extremely quickly, so hopefully that will be the case now also.

    Mania and I will be discussing some long range ways to prevent it from being a regular issue, possibly moving it permanently to the backup site :)
