Yesterday my hosting server took a painful hit. Some hard drive crashed and I lost access for 7 hours, then had some issues for another 6 or so hours. Not sure how many hundred's of people found my site not responding. Argh!!! Technology can really bite.
I would not have cared a month ago. Around December 16, I went from 50 viewers a day to about 300. Last friday I took a peak of 500!!! Not sure what was so significant. I'm guessing Google re-indexed and my site got much higher in their Page-Rank (woohoo, go Google!). Anyways, hopefully this won't happen again. I'm seriously considering switching hosting providers, but I'm not sure if its worth it.
