Has it already been two months since I thought out loud about reviving this blog, instead of reviving the site was actually offline for three days! but I don’t think anyone would even have noticed cause the site get’s very little traffic nowadays due to the lack of updates.
What exactly caused the outage is described at the Site With the LAMP. in short it was because a massive spike in demand for amazon EC2 spot instances.
I had a bit of trouble recovering because I hadn’t maintained proper backups but fortunately google cache always came to the rescue.
