Network issues today

Sorry everyone — our host Slicehost, which has usually been very good wrt uptime, had a whole bunch of trouble with packet loss this morning, and then later this afternoon. They took down the data center where we’re located (STL-A) for “emergency network maintenance” this afternoon, but the network seems to be up and humming smoothly now (you can track Slicehost’s status at

I should make it clear that the server and your data were never at risk, just your connectivity to it. Apologies to all for the downtime: though we’ve been very happy with Slicehost in the past, we’re exploring spreading our system across different providers in the future.

    I’ve noticed an iritating problem with when using IE7/IE8. Actaully, it’s been going-on now for months, I usually just work around it by going to the mobile version of the website. When I try to edit an existing entry, I get a dialog that shows an unknown file type titled, “edit.” My options are FInd, Save, or Cancel. Please advise…

    Hi Kevin — sorry about that. I was playing with tuning some MySQL and Rails deployment settings and had to restart the server a number of times yesterday and today. A couple times Rails was down for a half minute or so & I’m sure that was frustrating, very sorry! Things should be running more smoothly again.

    The problems outlined in this paper result from the fact that their may be a wish to share data but only if it allows you to take back the data. Private, custom data licenses do just that.
