Woo, milestone reached!

The Charley Project’s Facebook page reached 6,000 “likes” a few days ago. I add articles about missing person cases every day, including ones about cases not featured on Charley for one reason or another, and all entries I put on this blog are automatically linked on there. The Twitter account is at 967 followers at present. It posts links to two Charley cases every day.

It’s a bit of a challenge to summarize the cases in 140 characters or less and make the summaries interesting. For example, “Patty Spencer and Pam Hobley #disappeared together in 1969, which is kind of weird since they weren’t friends.” And, “Why did Ronald Westover lie to his family & falsely claim he had a recurrence of #LungCancer before he #disappeared?”

Unfortunately, TweetDeck, the program I use to keep Charley’s Twitter account updated, is not going to work for Windows after April 15. I use TweetDeck to schedule tweets in advance of posting, sometimes months in advance. It’s still going to be available to use online using my browser, but it will be less convenient that way. Oh, well.

Site is back up

Everything seems to be working again. I got an email from my host today:

Thank you for being patient with us while we restored services on our server farm.

The issue was a failed cache module in the shared storage array and it took time to diagnose, order the replacement part, and then make sure all systems were 100% back before we re-enabled access.

At this time all services are completely restored, however it may take some time for any emails that were not able to be received to be re-delivered. This may take 1-2 days under normal circumstances. We will continue to closely monitor all systems in case there are any lasting effects from the outage.

All customers will receive a 3 month service credit (applied to the end of their current contract) for the disruption.

We appreciate you sticking with us through this unusual and trying situation. We strive to provide the most cost effective solutions with adequate redundancy to prevent data loss.
