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?

What find is bullshit is that Amiga Inc. would have any downtime - I'm not really talking about your company - howeve 1 week of downtime is a tad bit excessive.
Listen I work for an ISP d00d. No offense intended to anyone who works in the industry, but I've seen why a lot of websites/isp services go down - and it usually has nothing to do with people breaking into computers or equipent failures. It has more to do with,
Whoops I didn't leave enough trailing ...'s to seperate reverse naming schemes from network names (so someone's dns gets scewed up...).
Whoops - That beta Kernel/OS I installed hanged on me over the weekend
Whoops - I don't have a clue what I'm doing because my company is too cheap to hire someone who does...
Who cares about that latest security update - what are the chances someone is going to mess with my machine anyhow (I've seen this one more often then you can posibily imagine).
Whoops - I didn't install a fan on that Cyrix 6x86 running our webpage (this actually happened at a place I worked at).
Amazon might be different - they use Digital Unix - and anyone who has ever used it knows I need not digress (just to give everyone else a clue - we had a script running on our Digital Unix machine to reboot it every week because the memory would get fragmented and crash the machine... and it had 1024 megs of ram...)
I'd trust my life to my Linux servers for not only security, but also reliability.
