Downtime, Downtime, what you gonna do?

Posted on 11 June 2004 by

Hey everybody. I’d like to apologize profusely for the downtime. Ironically we survived a slashdotting without much of a hitch, but a glitch with our dedicated server provider (1and1) let some other box hijack our IP address (the noirve!) That is why you arrived at a default Red Hat/Apache page for the last few hours. We were NOT r00ted, DMCA’d, lawyered, hacked, exceeded bandwith allotment, or anythign else of that nature. Just a very unfortunate and untimely network/routing issue.

I’m working very hard to make this site/community better (as are our other admins pj, and VA). Our server and provider *should* be rock solid, and I can only hope that this was an abberation. I thank the visitors and regulars for their patience during this wonderfuly hectic week at byopvr. We have lots of cool stuff coming up for your infotainment including reviews, giveaways, articles, and natalie portman…

*whisper whisper whisper*

Uh… scratch that. There will be NO natalie portman. Carry on. =)
