A little after 11am 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. 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 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.
