    Just spitballin’ here, but since nginx tends to handle things better and isn’t generally vulnerable like apache is to slowloris, does that mean Pressable was still running apache based web servers?

    Everyone has problems. Vid sent us an email offering to help a few years ago when we went through a rough patch, we have done the same. Had we took him up on his offer I have no doubt he would have jumped right in to help us back then.

    He is not joking about the vultures. I wrote this when GD took out half the interwebs: http://saint-rebel.com/2012/09/10/hosting-douchebags/

    It’s sad that my industry is so shitty. It’s no secret I am not a fan of WPE, the reason is exactly in this ‘vulture’ context. When we had a bad day several years ago, like 2010, they hovered like buzzards @’ing every customer of ours who went to Twitter to vent or reach us. It shows such a lack of character.

    I’m all for competition and call me old fashioned but ambulance chasing is the worst way to try to win.

    Glad to see you made it out the other side Vid. Let’s get go get em.

    I am glad that they got everything fixed up. The next challenge will be damage recovery, and I hope they have a plan for it.

      Jeffrey,
      We’ve listened to and had conversations with lots of people about the best way to recover from this, being more transparent and open like this, is one of the methods, improving the infrastructure and demonstrating the improvements of the new infrastructure is second. Everything else is something we should do, but the bottom line is that we’re still 5 people. If we were larger, we may have been able to find the root cause with a fresher pair of eyes, very quickly.

      We are talking internally, with new and existing investors, and our board, to see what’s the best way to this.
