We often marvel at our unique business that combines cars primarily built between 1958 and 1960 and a web site driven world that is all very much brand new. This Saturday, we stretched our technology to its limits and it broke, so our website went down for a while, and of course, since you are reading this message, it is now back up again.
Our shared server, it seems, was overloaded, and while I would like to imagine a panel full of Lucas parts heating up and letting the smoke out, instead I suspect some administrator in a far away country felt we were using too much juice, and rather than dim the lights of everyone else on our shared server, they shut us off. Soon we will have our own dedicated server, which will hopefully speed page loading and prevent this from ever happening again.
Hopefully that server won’t leak oil and need a sheet of cardboard under it (like everything else in our building). Thanks for your patience as we grow!
