blog post Report So We Had Some Downtime

Uvumi.com was offline for nearly a week (thus the gap in our charts). The problem began as very strange networking issues, which originally were attributed to an issue on our primary server. But then the symptoms spread to another server at our data center (kindly hosted free of charge by Sprux LLC, my consulting firm).

I have been traveling with my family for the past couple of weeks but when I realized this was a potentially serious issue, I got on the phone with staff at the data center and they helped me identify the issue. The backbone network switch had experienced a partial hardware failure. I literally grabbed the next flight back to Reno, NV where the servers live and replaced the failed device with a backup unit.

Anyway, sorry for the downtime, and I have implemented measures to address situations like this more promptly in the future.
