Re: Recent bouts of downtime, and how it was fixed
basically if that was happening prior to sunday of this week, it was probably the host's mishandling of installing our RAID array when we purchased the second server a few months ago. they hadn't put in a cooling system and the drives were super close together - so any time there was heavy disk activity the site would lag, and in the case of last weekend, it crashed 3 times. (it took them 3 times of messing with the server to even notice)
if that's still happening for you after sunday, garyuu, it might be another issue, though i suspect it's related to the RAID array. last night's was network-related and i'm pretty much flat out unimpressed with the host right now.
we focus #1 on the site being snappy, non laggy and reliable, so this is so frustrating.
