Scheduled Maintenance This Weekend

My one long year with multiple site outages and high ping response times is almost over. I’ll be moving from Dreamhost to my old host – Netfirms. I would be moving my blog and a couple of other sites so people who do stop by once in a while expect some downtime over this weekend while I’m doing this.

Sfsu.edu Is Down

sfsu_edu_pingSfsu.edu and all of its sub-domains like ilearn.sfsu.edu are down since almost 2 hours. And they’re still that way. What the fuck is going on during finals week? Or did the students take over the servers in the basement this time.

It can be my own personal site with various things I’m doing right now.
