The WordPress.com blog announcement about the outage.
(Click image to read the announcement.)
Apologies to readers who tried to access either Behind The Water Tower or Tunnel Vision last night. Our hosts WordPress.com had a 2 hour outage last yesterday evening. During our two years on WordPress, this has been the first major problem that we have encountered.
WordPress has proven to be sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, blogging environment and we have no regrets about our choice. We would thoroughly recommend WordPress to anyone looking for a versatile blog engine and a reliable blog host.
