Server downtime

Oh dear. What a stressful time it is when your host’s server suffer “technical difficulties” and takes 36 hours before it’s back online whilst loosing your 2 most recent blogs (now recovered). Hmmm… clearly no load balancing here then. The first technical support guy was so unhelpful. But I knew I had to stay calm, … Continue reading “Server downtime”

Oh dear. What a stressful time it is when your host’s server suffer “technical difficulties” and takes 36 hours before it’s back online whilst loosing your 2 most recent blogs (now recovered). Hmmm… clearly no load balancing here then. The first technical support guy was so unhelpful. But I knew I had to stay calm, as shouting doesn’t get you anywhere in these situations [thinks back to 3 delievries of a Dell].
Thankfully a new server is in place which is actually responds to page requests much faster.

The MPH coalition have updated their website with all the details. All that have supported the cause have made a significant impact on the G8 summit. Greater aid has been promised and some debt removed, but the outcome will not make poverty history. Now that Live8 and the G8 has passed, lets not forget why it happened. These leaders know, now the media coverage has gone the presure will drop. Lets not let this happen. Visit MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY.org every week, stay informed and see what you can do about what’s happening in your world.

Make Poverty History

You may have noticed the ‘MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY‘ banner on this site. That’s because I watched the fantastic Live8 concerts yesterday and I am now a supporter of this worthy cause. Placing this banner onto brainfire is the least I can do. Hopefully, in doing so I will make more people aware and encourage you to get involved.
Hope you watched the gigs yesterday and more importantly listened to what Bob Geldolf had to say.
Oh, and for some of you I know the banner covers the ‘Contact‘ button, but I don’t really think that’s important right now.
