Made #1 on Hacker News – Website Problems Hopefully Resolved

My last blog article on the Terrible View of the Real World through the Magic Leap One made the Top Story on Hacker News. That good news set off a series of events that took the site down.

The traffic was so heavy with many downloads that it overburdened my hosting service and they throttled the site making it very hard to reach. To prevent this problem in the future, I upgraded my hosting service which required changing servers and thus the DNS address. The transfer was set for early this morning, but there were problems with the DNS propagation resulting in another 3+ hours delay.

Hopefully, this will solve the problems for the next time an article goes semi-viral.
