What it seems to boil down to is that there are too many of you, chumps.
Too much traffic, too many comments, too much too muchness.
I think my Australian shepherd might have an equally valid opinion of what’s wrong. (“You need more squirrels. Fewer cats. Optimize treats.”)
I thought I could get away with my current hosting plan after they upgraded me to “Pro” — and when that failed, they said, oh you have to “Optimize” for an additional $99. So I did that, and it was still crashed. The optimization geniuses never got back with me and the tech support people said “Oh, the Optimization Team has to deal with this.” I said my best guess after not hearing from the Optimization Team for 24 hours was that they were asleep under their desks or optimizing some beer.
“We would never allow that in our workplace” typed the disembodied LiveChat man, prudishly.
Anyway, I’m punchy. And the long and the short of it is I have to migrate to another server again. One that can handle this much traffic. Hopefully I can get by with the Virtual Dedicated Server and not the plain ol’ dedicated server. Had to upload all my files so they can figure out pricing for me.
But in a bit of GOOD NEWS — my Stupid Shit Cheaters Say book trailer is finished and it is a HOOT! I can’t wait to show it to you. But I dare not do it right now because any spike in traffic will crash my site until I can move it over someplace nice and stable. (Gee maybe leaving hosting companies is like leaving cheaters?) Let’s hope Chump Lady has a nice new life with a nice new server who appreciates her.
But stay tuned! Will be up and steady SOON! And limping along until then.
