Whatever Down and Now Back Up

In case you were wondering why the hell the Whatever was down for four and a half hours — got me. It was a problem on the host provider side, not something I did. It wasn’t like I was sticking jam into my computer or anything. I alerted the host provider to the problem and then went to bed, and was pleased to see the problem addressed once I woke up. And I suppose that if one had to have one’s site down for four and a half hours, the four and a half hours between 1am and 5:30am would be the ones you would want.
