Back from the dead.

Has it already been two months since I thought out loud about [reviving][1] 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.][2] 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. [1]: [2]:
