I wanted to apologize for the long website outage yesterday.  The server that hosts our site was running a file system check for a few hours and there wasn't anything we could do.  If anyone is ever curious, we're on rhodope, from Site 5: http://www.site5.com/support/

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll make sure to avoid them in the future.

One beni for me was that the DNS servers or something must have been updated so now I can log on at work again.

Oops! Did I say that? JK, Psyche, NOT!

Actually Site5 is pretty good, it's just that the Arduino site has really grown beyond the point where it makes sense to have it on a shared hosting plan.  For personal web pages and the like, they can be a good value.

Site5 would seem to very somewhere between "barely passable" and "what a deal" depending on your server.
From the support forum's outage announcements, It's obvious some servers are down much more often then others.
Rhodope for instance has seen service pretty much every week while (for instance) enki (or lithium) has seen an outage every few months while it rebooted.

What concerns me though, are the number of instances of "server came up read-only, we're fscking and hopefully everything will magically be better".
