Many people wrote in to say that amiga.com is up again, after what seemed like taking the weekend off. When was the last time you saw a company website, or even a personal homepage, being down for two days?

amiga.com up again : Comment 18 of 34ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 15 (Michael Jantzen):
- Utter BS.
And which particular bit of my post was bullshit? That my
company suffered a week's outage? That outages of 2 days or more
happen to websites all the time? That Amazon has suffered 24
hour outages despite running on numerous servers?
- I have had a webserver on hana.maybe.net (its pretty
- dam slow, so it might seem like its down but its not...) for the
- last year and a half with NO down time.
And that proves that no websites suffer downtime? Talk about
bullshit.
- If I can do that with a leased ADSL line - Amiga Inc can do
- better with a T1.
1) A leased line relies on the provider. If the provider fucks up
you can only move. That takes time. Sometimes weeks, depending on
what you have to do. The fact that you personally have a provider
that hasn't fucked up doesn't prove a thing.
2) servers fall over, get hacked etc. It happens.
3) Amiga is NOT in the web business. The website is an extra. It
is not central to their business and I don't believe for a second
they are using it as their method of attracting business
partners.
You can puff and pout as much as you like. The fact remains that
websites DO go down for periods of several days. This happens for
many different reasons. Even running co-located servers is not
guaranteed to avoid it.
