We’re back. Finally.

After two days and as many server moves, SEB and the rest of the blogs I run for various family members are back up and running. If you tried visiting the site during that time you may or may not have seen much of anything. Sometimes the sites were working, sometimes they were somewhat working, and sometimes it couldn’t resolve the URL at all. A couple of our sites were broken for the entire duration of the problem. No one’s really sure what happened, but it seems to be back to whatever passes for normal now with the only exception being my mother’s blog for which the URL isn’t resolving properly at this time, but we’re hoping it’ll sort itself out within a couple of hours.

I’d hoped to get some new entries up over the weekend, but that obviously wasn’t going to happen given the messed up state the site was in. So here’s a quick update on the job search. Got a call back from the newest contract house I interviewed with last week letting me know that the position they put me in for with DTE Energy here in the Detroit area had informed them that I was on the short list of potential candidates and that I should expect a phone call from someone within a day or two. And later today at 1:30PM I have the interview for the Second Level Server Admin position back at Ford that sounds like the best of the current opportunities I’ve been presented with so I’m really going to try hard to sell myself. Of course, it’s currently 3:14AM and I’ve not been to bed yet so I should probably finish this up and get some sleep so I don’t look all worn out by the time the interview comes along.

  1. Just so you know, I can see the site fine on my PC but my MAC shows the following (both are using Firefox 1.0.7):

    There is no website configured at this address.

    You are seeing this page because there is nothing configured for the site you have requested. If you think you are seeing this page in error, please contact the site administrator or datacenter responsible for this site.

  2. If you know how to clear out your Mac’s local DNS cache then that should take care of the problem there. On Windows you just open a DOS window and type in ipconfig /flushdns, but I have no idea how you’d do it on a Mac.

    We’re still ironing out a couple of kinks. I sometimes have to hit reload when I first come to SEB to get it to display properly and my mother’s domain name still isn’t resolving as it should.

  3. I am also using Firefox and for me the easiest solution was just to go in to preferences (either in tools or edit) then just click on clear next to cache.

  4. Last night all my PC would cough up is “www.stupidevilbastard.com cannot be found”.  Zilch.  This morning everything is fine, except a few gravatars- mine, socswine’s, terrorans- are missing.

  5. engfant, that’s all I could come up with for Thanksgiving. Especially after wrestling with the site for a couple of days. grin

    MoP, you don’t like my pilgrim hat?

    Zilch, it sometimes takes awhile for the DNS entries to update round the world. By now everyone should be seeing us properly again.

  6. There’s nothing wrong with the hat per se, it’s just that the picture on the home page will haunt my nightmares for the rest of my life.

    *Wakes up in a cold sweat*
    “Pilgrim Hat!”
