Here’s my buddy Rastin’s site, about 2 minutes ago:
I’ve never had so many interruptions, database connection issues, and other niggling little problems like completely flat-out missing stats. The problem is that when the grid hiccups, it’s not just one site that goes down … it’s all of them.
So when you see Rastin’s site down, mine is too.
The one good thing is that the sites never seem to go down for long. They’re always down for just a minute or two … which is interesting when you put in a Support request and they say there’s no problem.
MediaTemple needs to address this quickly. They have a reputation for excellent technology and service – a lot of high-profile sites and bloggers use MediaTemple.
Dropping off the grid for random minutes on a daily basis will not enhance that reputation.
