My whole website, including this blog, was out of service from about 10:00 PDT last night until 7:00 this morning. It was my fault. I wasn’t paying attention to the disk storage being used by backups and the site ran up against its disk storage limit. It didn’t fail gracefully; everything just came to a screeching halt. With a little help from Media Temple, my hosting company, we got things working again. You may have noticed some long page load times over the last two weeks; I think we may have fixed that, too.
Thanks to all of you for your support.
