I know you all were clamoring to read you some 8WK news at about 1 a.m.
Too bad if you were. I couldn’t even reach my sites, not one of them. Darned frustrating, too, as I had just spent the previous hour setting up an Amazon tap to the new network, then setting up a TP-Link smart plug as well. Then I got online and found that I could not even reach my regular home page, nor my Wiki, nor this very useful website.
Dreamhost is pretty good at letting you know when something’s up. The status from around that time: “Our Operations teams are currently investigating connectivity issues which indicate an issue related to our name servers. We will provide updated information as it becomes available.”
Here I was fixing to blame the local ISP. It turns out my Web host had a DNS connectivity issue.
Well, it’s fixed now. Thanks, Dreamhost.
