Today’s outage

Approximately 4 hours ago, Ozblogistan began to receive a very high level of traffic. During this period my performance tracking tools stopped working so it is difficult to tell how much traffic was received during the period. A few minutes ago I kicked over our web server to reset all connections, which resolved this matter […]

We’re back

If you see this message, you’re on the new servers at the original providers. Moses ain’t got nothing on me.

The Second Migration

That you can see this post means you’re on the new server. Welcome. There will be glitches — duplicates and the like. Sorry about the disruption, but I hoped you all enjoyed the kittens and the dalek.

Trauma

Last night the Ozblogistan network slowed down and then began to “yo-yo” — stop working and then reappear cyclically. I have been becoming increasingly dissatisfied with WPEngine’s reliability and service. Tis was the straw that broke the camel’s back. So I began a crash move of the network to a new hosting service, Page.ly. That […]

I am moving the site from its current home to a new one. The new service is a company specialising in WordPress hosting. They will be taking responsibility for all the […]

Hacked again

Hello all, your friendly Ozblogistan Tyrant here, abusing my multisite posting powers. This morning I received two independent reports of trojan warnings being given for two different Ozblogistan websites. After investigation, I have determined that the server was automatically compromised, presumably by a brand new attack (since we just 2 days ago updated to WordPress […]

A wee request

In the last six months or so, we’ve received a number of requests to publish guest posts on this blog from people who are strangers to us. At first, I assumed the messages were spam, and just ignored them. However, over the last couple of months the volume has increased considerably and it’s become clear […]

Planned Outage Tonight

Hello everyone, it’s your friendly Ozblogistan Tyrant here. I plan to migrate our servers to a different data centre tonight. There will be some disruption during the move, and it may take time for your DNS records to be updated. We’re moving from the Fremont data centre, which has turned out to be about as […]
