    Yep. Slowly bringing a few sites back online, but sure did put a kink in the day's development plans...

    Sucks when it happens. I had problems mid last week into this week and finally my sites are back up. It sucks huge.

    And so, my brother in downtime, I offer you a personal favorite:

    Hurricane recipe

    1 oz vodka
    1/4 oz grenadine syrup
    1 oz gin
    1 oz light rum
    1/2 oz Bacardi 151 rum
    1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
    1 oz triple sec
    grapefruit juice
    juice


    Pour all but the juices, in order listed, into a hurricane glass three-quarters filled with ice. Fill with equal parts of grapefruit and juice, and serve.

    Yes, it's fruity.
    But, and it's a big but, you will after one of these appreciate the finer things in life.
    Like ...
    having enough supplies to make a second.
    having the time to be able to drink two of these when you in a perfect world you might be working.
    having enough of your wits left to make a third.
    having a nice comfy spot to pass out on the floor.

    Cheers!

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Sounds sorta' tasty and I think I have all the fixin's but the juice and grenadine syrup, so maybe not so tasty after all, but that spot on the floor will likely still be comfy after three or more...

    Shaken or stirred?

    Do I look like I give a damn?
    heh ... bond quote.
    I actually use crushed ice and give it a little shake. For the first.
    For the second if I have crushed ice left I use that, too.
    For the third I use whatever is left.
    If I make a fourth I usually don't remember what ice is.
    For the fifth ... in all honesty I don't even remember if I ever made a fifth, let alone what I made it with or how I served it.

    host should always have multiple DNS servers in the event of a DoS on one

    I use a third party DNS provider (they've been rock-solid for a few years now) and from what I hear, all of their servers were hit at once. Switched the important sites to my host's DNS and got those back up pretty quick. Looks like the rest are back online now as well. Still a crumby bit of stress while juggling...
