Secondary site server slow load times

Victory Soap, my secondary site, is experiencing slow load times. This really doesn't matter to anyone but me, as I don't have any current "public" blogs on that site, just my archived blogs from 2007 and 2008, and some test blogs.

Update: everything is back up.

Server Status Update #2 - 2 days late

Sorry folks, I've already forgotten my plan to update every Monday! Anyway, Spleenville is up, Victory Soap is down (5-minute load time). ETA 1:42 PM EST.

Updated 5:17PM - V-soap is back up, Spleenville is up.

Socket timeout

Spleenville's servers are not loading: there is a "Socket timeout after 10 seconds" message. Wait a few minutes -- these things usually get resolved in fifteen minutes or less.

I'll be off to a play soon, so I won't be able to post an update for a couple of hours.

6:21pm update: okay, I'm back, the site is up. Don't know when it up, but Hosting Matters is usually on the ball and gets the servers clear in a few minutes. In any case, no one sent me any irate emails.

Spleenville Weekly Server Status No. 1

This is something new. I figured I should have something up here more than cryptic, weeks-old cries of dismay about unreachable servers and so on. So every Monday (let's see if I remember) I'll post an announcement on the state of the Spleenville.com and Victorysoap.us servers. And as of this moment they are both all clear.

Server down AGAIN

Why is it always when I'm trying to do something? Argh.

I forgot to add: and the server site doesn't show my server as being down -- I just can't reach my site, that's all. It's been doing that a lot lately -- I'll be unable to log in or even load my website, and I'll look at the server site and it won't say there's anything wrong for half an hour. *Inline update* -- Oh, now they have my server up as having socket timeouts and such. About time!

5:29 PM, it's finally back up.

Server down

Servers are down again. (Well, they're experiencing "critical socket timeouts" and "5-minute load times" and so on. But whatever that means, I can't get to the site.)

Update: okay, it's fine now.
