Jφss Sticks To Be Extinguished Tonight

(9)
Tuition given in the topic of Study Break from the desk of Miss Loi at 1:35 pm (Singapore time)

UPDATE: As some of you might already be aware of, the scheduled maintenance did not take place.

The feeling now is like after seeing your own child being whisked into the operating theatre, the doctor tells you the next morning that the surgery was not performed at all, and will have to be rescheduled to another day.

Don’t bother to check your calendar. It’s not April 1st.

With a heavy heart and a crackling voice, it pains Miss Loi to announce that at 11pm on the night of Malaysia’s 50th Birthday (31 August 2007), Jφss Sticks will be all but snuffed out.

Sincere apologies in advance to those who never get to read this and try to access after 11pm – only to catch the last glowing cinders of Miss Loi’s great labour for the past six months, if they’re lucky.

After all that’s been said and done, it’s really sad this has to happen. But even as Miss Loi fights to hold back her tears, she vows that she’ll be back …

… once that damned hardware maintenance is done by 5am the next day, maybe longer.

But she’ll be back. That’s a promise.

頑張って!!!

    Goodness, what kind of rubbish service level is this? If they need to do a maintenance, move the stuff to another server THEN perform maintenance on the old machine. Or do they only have ONE server? Wah piang eh, how to do business like that?

    Thanks everyone for your comments and inputs.

    As the update says, the scheduled maintenance didn't happen and so Jφss Sticks is still alive (for now).

    Yeah it's bizarre and the uncertainty of this issue continues to be a source of anxiety to Miss Loi.

    Guess the webhost wasn't really adept at handling this particular scenario but to their credit they have been pretty responsive to our requests/issues and (like what they said in their update blog) we didn't really have much problem till this period.

    In a way, Miss Loi is quite appreciative of their transparency and honesty when she first encountered this 'update blog' of theirs i.e. how many butt-covering Singaporean company would actually be willing to expose their shortcomings in such a manner?

    Miss Loi once had an unpleasant experience with her previous host: a major local corporation with 24-hour hotline, 'promised' 99.99% uptime and in the end these things turn out to mean nothing. Furthermore she's heard some horror stories regarding other local webhosts as well.

    So is the local scene that bad?

    Apparently my website's now sitting on the new server. A rather seamless transfer to conclude this messy saga. http://tinyurl.com/2ydorb
