Thanks to Brion and all who helped out with the outage. Bad things
happen despite the best of preparations, and even in hindsight I doubt
if anything could have been done aside from the costly and impractical
alternative of having a fully redundant site off in a bunker somewhere.
Not all failures can be foreseen.
In the interest of harm reduction for the future, I would like to
recommend the excellent services of the folks at easydns.com
provided reliable secondary services and mail queuing for me for some
years while I was handling IT stuff for an employer. Their prices are
cheap, they have competent technical support, and they have a network
of secondaries on at least two continents. I would suggest that we
include them in our plans even if other measures are taken.
