Musicbrainz Mirror Still Down Because CloudAtCost is Terrible

MusicbrainzlogoThe Musicbrainz mirror remains offline after 24 hours because CloudAtCost is a very bad VPS provider.   If I had a nickel for every time the VPS went offline I’d build myself a datacenter out of nickels.

Yeah, they’re cheap.  That’s about all they have going for them.  Their network is lossy, their machines are oversold, and their uptime is laughable.

Since the mirror is free, I don’t really have any option but to stick with them so we’ll have to ride out the downtime.

05/21/2014 02:51PM Edit: According to CloudAtCost, my server “should be fixed tonight”… it’s really comforting to know they’re so confident in their abilities to get things fixed in a timely manner (or at all).  55+ hours offline at this point.
