Is Up And Running Again

When it rains, it pours!

The timing couldn't have been worse to have server issues. After our presentation at Steemfest and organizing meet-ups to onboard new users subsequently, having our platform unavailable for access was the worst case scenario, paired with @jpphotography 's computer breaking down and @for91days traveling on full airplane mode, not being able to communicate, made it all perfect for chaos.

Good news is, is up and running again! We bought a new server with a more reliable customer support. In three weeks we will implement our new server infrastructure, it will include a backup server and more powerful machines to host These steps are of course no guarantees as websites sometimes go offline, that's just their nature, all we do is our best to prevent it from happening in the future as much as possible.

For now our server issues are fully resolved but @jpphotography 's computer maintenance is still a problem, the screen doesn't turn on anymore. It's frustrating to learn that it's a well known issue with his MacBook Pro called flexgate and it's not covered by their warranty since the issue occurred after one year of purchase. Repairs can cost over $500 and even worse though, he won't have a machine to work on for up to three weeks, hence the timelapse for us to implement our new server infrastructure. There is really nothing more frustrating than wanting to work but not being able to, because of technical issues.

But taking things a bit easier after Steemfest and our meet-ups might not be a bad thing, it gives us the opportunity to reflect on that time and to process all the information we gathered during the conference and many talks we had.

I had my Macbook crap out on me here I had to get an os upgrade/reinstall at a cost of $1600 Baht at iService (took about an hour). Prior to coming to Bangkok I had "flexgate" fixed in Singapore for $160 Sgd and took maybe 30 min. (Apple tried to charge me $700 Sgd and wanted the laptop for 2 weeks). Come to Singapore and I'll take you to where I got mine fixed 8-) Best wishes for ya!


@jpphotography .. maybe something to consider!!!! Thank you for the info!!!!! That flexgate thing is outrageous!!!


No prob, anytime! 8-) but it turns out my flex cable issue was different than jp's, lol. Worst of all is when crap hits the fan on the road, I was so stressed haha...

Good your back online anyway, which is the main thing. Sometimes shit happens and there is not much you can do about it other than survive.
