Mediatemple, the company that hosts this website as well as thousands of others, is down (again). They’ve gone from being outstanding to being worse than my previous hosting provider, Bluehost, which says a lot. Before they switched to an on-demand Grid based system, things were awesome. Now, the reliability is just plain terrible.
I’ll pay money to have a reliable host. I just can’t seem to find one.
UPDATE: Things have stabilized for now, with Mediatemple promising a ‘1.1’ release of Grid Server that should help. In addition, they comped me two months of hosting fees. While comping fees is the right thing to do, it doesn’t begin to compensate for extended downtime.
