Hi there!

Okay, so you’re probably all pretty annoyed by now about all the site issues we’ve had. Well times that by 100 and you know how we feel. When you start an online business and choose a hosting company you never dream you’ll be dealing with so much headache! Lesson learned: Do NOT use DreamHost — terrible uptime, terrible response times, terrible customer service. They’ve been one problem after another and I must admit I’m embarassed we didn’t ditch them a year ago. BUT, you live and learn.

The point is we’ve scheduled the move to our new hosting for tonight. That means the site will be down for a couple hours beginning at 10 pm pacific/1 am eastern. Hopefully this won’t interfere with anyone’s plans.

Sorry about all this!

Hi guys,

Many of you have noticed some intermittent outages and slow performance over the past two days. Our hosting company tells us the server we’re on has an unusually high load (i.e., someone is hogging server bandwidth!) but they’re looking into it today and should be back to us soon. We’ll let you know what we hear.

Because of these problems we’ve pushed up the hosting change to next week. Our new hosting service has better reliability and quicker response times, which means fewer headaches for you! The switch will take place in the middle of the night so it shouldn’t cause any conflicts. We’ll post more info here when we have it.

Best,

Sara & Josh
