He still contributes occasionally and handles all the technical and design work for the site. 4 Comments Rob August 5, 2004 Hosting Matters hosts so many of the blogs on my blogroll that when they are having problems my blog reading pretty much comes to a stand still. Sharp as a Marble August 5, 2004 Thank God you are all back! I was having withdrawl! Jay Solo August 5, 2004 It wasn’t just HM. Blogs that are hosted elsewhere went down, including BlogSpot. Symantec and other sites went down. It was as if about half the internet stopped for a while, some of it blinking off and on for a while. I figured a major physical outage, DNS issue, or denial of service attack. DNS seemed less likely when some of the affected sites couldn’t be raised using their IP addresses. I’m curious to learn what happened. King of Fools August 5, 2004 Hmmm…Didn’t miss you a bit. My feedreader might have, though.
