NOTE: We will have some planned downtime starting around 11pm EST on Tuesday, June 28th due to maintenance planned by our hosting company.
UPDATE: June 26, 2011 – 8:10PM EST:
The site’s service has been restored since around 7:30PM EST after we got our backups back online and ran some tests on the replacement hardware.
UPDATE: June 26, 2011 – 6:30PM EST:
We had to take the site offline temporarily to due some server maintenance relating to the hardware changes we had to make early Saturday morning (read below). We are working to get the site and its services back online just as soon as we can.
Thanks for your patience!
UPDATE: June 25, 2011 – 4AM EST:
As it turns out, some of the issues we’ve been noticing in problems with network requests, influences, deleting portfolios, and a couple other random things may come down to hardware issues with one of the servers in our cluster.
Our hosting company just swapped out the defective server with a new one right now (after we discovered the issue around 1:30AM EST), so if you see any weirdness it’s probably due to the server-side things that we’re working on.
UPDATE: June 21, 2011 – 1:35AM EST:
Search and all related functionality is now back online! This affected our jobs board as well as some modules and other pages, but it’s back up and running on the cluster servers as of 10pm EST or so.
Page loads should also be a bit speedier across the board, including Login, Dashboard, Profiles, Portfolios, and Inspirations.
More news to come!
UPDATE: June 20, 2011 – 3:35AM EST:
Portfolio and Inspiration tools are back online!
The new server cluster seems to be humming along, load balancers and all. As it turns out, upgrading to Rails 3.0 (in addition to all the other changes/upgrades) caused a few additional hiccups along the way. We are working to fully restore the design:related search engine as well as fixing a few other bugs just as soon as we can.
UPDATE: June 18, 2011 – 1:45AM EST:
Things are back up and running, and the DNS should be completely updated in the next 24 hours or so. We have a few more things to do, and we’re working to restore a few key user functionalities just as soon as we can.
June 17, 2011 – 4:45AM EST:
All of our user data has successfully migrated over to our new servers, and we’re doing some testing now. We are working around the clock to get the site back up and running, and we appreciate your patience as we finish up some final touches on our new back-end architecture. :)
