You’re not crazy, we had some downtime Monday night that lasted through Tuesday morning. Sorry about that, and thanks for your patience! If you ever notice the site is down, you can check the PB Facebook or Twitter for status updates.
So, what happened?
We ran out of space! The server that runs our database filled up due to a bug. As a temporary fix and to get PB running again, I increased the server space. That worked and we were back up, but I wanted to make sure the issue was totally fixed, so I reached out to the developer and he jumped in and was able to fix things.
The best part? Thanks to the revenue from subscriptions, spinning up the developer was a smooth process. I had the ability to quickly bring him in and take care of things without any concern about funds. That is such a relief compared to how things were going earlier in the year.
One thing I wanted to call attention to:
I was looking into the logs and – believe it or not – this is the first bit of lengthy downtime PB has had this year! How crazy is that?? After the rollercoaster issues last year, we’ve made it through almost 9 months without a single big problem. I’m really proud of that, and I think all of you should be too. Thanks to the work that was done on the server last year, PB has been speedy and solid for most of 2019. I love that.
And so does Mochi
