Second Outage Corrected

Everything is all well again on the SolarYpsi website. The server move over the weekend exposed a number of code instabilities and as of Monday morning (October 10, 2011) it was clear the site needed to go down again for more repair work. That repair work has very nearly completed with only a final data move remaining. As a result of this most recent outage, the entire code base of the website has been modified and initial testing indicates it is much more stable. Along with the upgraded server (thank you HDL!), the new code should be ready to handle what we hope is an ever increasing traffic load.

Thanks again for your continued support. Again, please let us know if you find something on the website that doesn’t seem right.

SolarYpsi outages, moved to a new server

Well by now I’m guessing everyone has already seen the SolarYpsi video that Google made. As of Oct 8th it has over 125,000 views. This video has also caused a ton of traffic on the SolarYpsi.org website. We were consuming the majority of the processing power on the server so we shut it off for a while. The traffic hasn’t tailed off yet, so last Friday we moved to a new and faster server. Many thanks to HDL.com for hosting and putting up with us and to Nik Estep who straighten out the website code after the move. As of Saturday night the website is mostly back together and I’ve been adding more content.

Sorry for the outage, and let me know if you see anything not working correctly.
