Trying to go to but Will’s site is down.

Anybody know why?

My website is down too. I think there are internet issues going around. @willwood or @barchard any ideas? rwextras is down too.

Great, thx for update. I’m sure Greg will fix it asap :slight_smile:

yep working as fast as possible. data center issue at the moment affecting a large swatch of users, not just Chillidog. sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.



Damn. The Russians are hacking us Weavers too?

No. no. There was a hardware issue at the datacenter which affected the shared server. This caused a performance issue and prevented things from running properly. The hardware has been replaced and things are back to normal now. :0

Since a fellow forum member suggested it, I use Statuscake to keep tabs on whether a site is up or down.

Then, because I use Chillidog for all new sites, I follow @barchard on Twitter because Greg’s pretty good at updating his feed when something’s ‘up’.

Apologies to Will Woodgate and Gregory Barchard for any misunderstandings that resulted from my inquiry as to why Will’s site was down yesterday.

I made the post here because I was so surprised because Will Woodgate may be the most reliable and dependable of all RapidWeaver developers, and I’m even placing him above the fellows at RealMac.

I find Will’s help with all things RapidWeaver (and beyond) to be indispensable, and what actually prompted me to post here was the difficulty I had pulling up a google cache of one of his stack pages. I found that to be somewhat alarming.

As for the Russian hack comment, that was just a joke. I don’t think the Russians have hacked much of anything–except themselves.

(The current, perpetual tirade by the left in the US claiming Trump is president via a Russian hack mimics the same ruse they deployed after George W Bush won and re-won the first Florida count and then the re-count in 2000. The only thing that ended that continuous tirade were the events of September 11, 2001.)

In a private message to me Will also offered this sage bit of advice:

In future before you start posting “x website is not loading for me” comments, it would be my personal suggestion that common sense prevails and that you go to a website like and enter the website address. Seriously, that will tell you in just a few seconds where the problem is.

I did not know this resource existed, but somehow I shouldn’t really be surprised that Mr Woodgate did know about it.

This is not an April 1 joke.
