I was unable to get here for about 24 hours ... still can't resolve ZUG home site. Is it the site, my network, or somethng in between?

Eror message in Firefox on Xandros 3.0.1 is:

Site Temporarily Unavailable

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.

error id: "bad_httpd_conf"

I had dns resolution problems, telling that www.oesf.org couldn't be found. Weird ...

It could've been power issues like last time.

Fortunately we weren't attacked. Unfortunately Dreamhost disabled my account sad.gif

Basically we were on a shared server with dreamhost (on the strictly business plan), and our websites were using > 25% utilization of the server and apparently that's just too much.

They've been notifying (automated messages) me for a while now (203 days), and I had responded to them several times telling them to move me to a dedicated server. On Monday Oct 24 a support rep emailed me saying that I had 24 hours to respond or the account would be disabled. Unfortuantely this has been an extremely busy week at work, so I didn't see the email until Tuesday night. From there it took them about a day and a half to re-enable my account (and all services should be back online).

By sometime next week we should be on a dedicated server plan (New Moon), and I paid for a year so we shouldn't see troubles like this for a little while...

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Well, damn, sorry to read that. Will the dedicated server cost extra, and should we users perhaps throw a little paypal your way?
