Okay, so today I found a bug with IntenseDebate that was causing user comments to not to sync/appear on the site. While it still is having issues (the people at IntenseDebate need to fix a couple of bugs with the service), it is now mostly working.

This bug affected several comments from as far back as nine months ago. I’ve gone through and fixed those comments so that they appear again.

Anyways, I fixed the bug and sent the patch to the IntenseDebate developers. Hopefully they can sort things out.

So I’ve switched hosts to WebFaction to try out their service. So far it’s a lot better than my old host (I’m going to keep WebFaction around for awhile and if I like it, I’ll cancel my old host’s service [and get a refund]).

I don’t get anything unlimited (so no overselling) but I get the peace of mind that they won’t shut down anything because it’s too popular (unlike my other host). Plus the service is really fast for me. Did you see how fast tabs switch on the homepage? I remember when it used to take forever just for the request to go through.

Most of the site should be running just fine but let me know if you encounter any hiccups via the comments for this post.

We are back

So after a server migration, ThunderBrowse is now back online. Hooray!

I apologize for not giving a heads up to this downtime, I was unaware that the servers were going to go down. But now we don’t have to worry about that!

So basically, the old server went down was because ThunderBrowse was on a shared hosting account and the other people on the server decided to leave but not tell anyone else, thus the hosting account was suspended. This caused everyone to see the account was suspended while I migrated over to a brand new server.

I apologize for any confusion this might have caused. None of your accounts were closed, only our hosting account.

Thanks for understanding and I hope you continue to enjoy using ThunderBrowse.
