    I apologize for the website issues that lasted nearly 2 days. The reason behind this was that our hosting provider suffered a power outage at their Atlanta facility. This effected many servers and not just ours. They had to restore the backups for all the sites which took a long time, however the part that ticked me off was that it took them 24 hours to even acknowledge that our server was having issues too.

    This whole situation was pretty frustrating and stressful because there was nothing more I could do other than wait. I submitted tickets, contacted support, and all they could say was that our engineers were working on it.

    At the end of the day I am just happy the site is back online and especially with no data loss. At this time I am starting to look for a new hosting provider because this has happened before and I'm pretty tired of it! No change is imminent but you will know when it happens.

    Thanks for sticking it out with me and if you notice anything wacky please let me know here.
