I fought the server and the…server won; I fought the server and the…server won.
Unfortunately, due to a “problem with the DNS records for didntyouhear.com” this site has been down for the past four days, and anyone who visited (myself included) was handed little more than a 500 Error page.
In addition to the site going down, this DNS error also knocked out my email server, so for everyone who sent me a kind (and much appreciated) email to let me know that the site was down, I want to say thanks, and let you know that your message just came though, so I apologize for my delayed response.
The good news is that the error is now fixed, and Didnâ€™t You Hear will be returning with full force (and then some) on Monday; so if youâ€™ve lost all hope, then please come back on Monday for a reminder of why you started to visit DYH in the first place.
For any of you with blogs of your own out there, just remember: Backups are your friend. I try to backup as frequently as possible, but I still donâ€™t do it enough, and all I could think of during this issue was, â€œMan, what if this error manages to clean out my site’s data as wellâ€.
Thankfully it didnâ€™t, but the potential was definitely there, so remember: Backup, Backup, Backup.
