A little after 11 am today if you are a very frequent visitor of this site you noticed it was down. I went to a talk on security today at WordCamp and installed a plugin which completely “hosed” my blog after I removed it. James looked at it today during lunch (above) and concluded that not only was the site “hosed”, but it somehow also completely broke PHP on the server. After a chat with the Happiness Bar and a few sessions with HostGator, I finally got it back tonight which makes it the longest outage I’ve had for a personally maintained site. Big lessons learned today and I am loving WordCamp this year. Thanks to James, the WordPress geeks at the Happiness Bar, and HostGator for your help getting the site back online again today.
