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 26 of 34ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 25 (Eoghann Irving):
"Its very excessive and we were furious about it. But there wasn't anything we could do.
Thats the point I'm making. It takes time to move a network. You need to sort out
a provider, IP addresses etc. "
This is what is wrong. Anyone whose done any system management will tell you that you're supposed to have disaster recovery plans in situ before a disaster occurs. Disaster happens, you invoke plan B which gets you back up in a minimum of time - a planned minimum too. eg. a second web server, backup isdn line should the T1 get cut etc.
Linux, Apache or whatever is irrelevant - you can't (realistically) protect against floods, lightning, drunken truck drivers crashing through your server room...
Now either Amiga Inc thought it unimportant or their service managment sucks is the impression I get when a public facing website is down that long.
