Holla back y’all…

OK, if you happen to be reading this then leave a comment or two or three.

The website has been up & down since Friday night when I discovered my webhost decided to move my content from one server to another. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal except they didn’t let me know so at some point while DNS was propagating updates were split between the two servers.

For those peeps that have no clue what I’m talking about imagine DNS is like the Yellow Pages. If you want pizza, you look up Pizza Hut in the directory and get the phone number to a location nearest you. You don’t remember the phone number, it’s easier to remember Pizza Hut. DNS is the same thing. When you open your browser and type www.gottagotta.com your computer uses DNS to find the proper IP address so the website opens in your browser.

In my case, the entry in the phonebook was wrong so everybody dialing Pizza Hut called a disconnected number.

Anyways, that explanation was much too long. Hopefully, I’m online to everybody that matters. I’ve added to the blog list once again and if you get a chance checkout these awesome sites: brainrazor, choz, darkside/lightside, popdog, rhys-isms & sweetcitrus.

    I saw it when it was down, and I was wondering what was going on…it seemed very out of character for things not to be working well. I figured that it must have been something beyond your control…and I guess I was right! 🙂

    Glad to hear things got straightened out with your DNS issues, but did you really have to relate it to Pizza Hut? God, I could go for a slice of cheese and jalepeno pizza. Mmmmm pizza. =)

    More importantly, I like the links you’ve added–you have GREAT taste! Heh…
