Yes. The site has been down for 4 days. :(

I logged a ticket with my hosting provider minutes after Pingdom sent me an alert, I’m not sure why it took them so long to get my machine back online.

Just upgraded the site to the latest php and WordPress. The site broke, but hopefully it’s all fixed now.

If I missed anything, hit me up on the contact page.

Google Reader

I’m kinda upset that that Google is killing reader.

It’s not like they need to spend any money on development, they haven’t done that for years anyway. Leaving it as it is doesn’t cost them a cent.

They say it has a relatively low number of users. Compared to what though.. Gmail? Yes, OK, it probably does.

But compared to other RSS readers out there? No way. It’s easily the most popular.

It’s the number 1 referrer on this website by far and has been for years. And I’m sure that’s the case for other websites too that have a lot of RSS content. But that’s not why I’m upset, hardcore slurper users will just switch to another product. And the ones that don’t just saved me a heap of money on bandwidth.

There are 2 reasons I’m upset. Number one is: I’m a user myself! I use reader every day. I rely on it to keep up to date with content on websites that I just don’t have time to visit individually.

But secondly, Google promised they would “do no evil”. And killing off something that is so clean and functional, so elegant and simple, which costs them virtually nothing to leave running, IS evil.

I don’t believe internet petions actually work, but I signed this one anyway.
