Server is back up!

Due to some error from my ISP, my Internet connection was down from friday afternoon (local time, GMT+1) until I could get a hold of their support this morning.

Server connection stability

Recently there has been quite frequent drops of connection to my server due to a poor quality router provided by my ISP. Today I got a call back from one of their technicians who told me that if I wanted to attach my own router, they would reload my connection to allow it to access their systems.

Well, it worked instantly and the connection was faster and more responsive than ever, but it caused my IP address to change so the DNS had to be changed, causing a bit of delay for this site to be available. I pointed ports to my new server and had to leave for work. Sadly I was in too much of a hurry as I failed to notice the ports were also routed to my old server, so some of you may have gotten a weird login page.

Anyway, quick fix once I got home and all runs smoothly and this router is rock solid and doesn’t crash every day ­čÖé Hope it gives a better experience on this site.
