Well, I decided to move all my websites from DigitalOcean to RamNode, after their system went down for 8 hours. It turns out it took them more than 2 hours to even start responding...
And I think I know why...
You can read more about it on my personal MeWe...
Their blog says that "production database had been deleted on master". What sort of bloody idiot deletes a running database for thousands of clients? It's like turning off electricity in a hospital!
The company said in a comment on their blog that nobody will get in trouble for that disaster, because they don't believe in getting people in trouble.
Well, I'm not a believer myself. For example I don't believe in a company that doesn't believe in responsibility. And somebody DID get in trouble. It was me.
But since I have no wish to be in trouble for mistakes of someone else, I'm not going back to Digital Ocean. I was three years a happy customer. But after this information I'll stay away.
Because I know how it works.
I was once hired in a government company. It was wonderful! I slept half of the time, I made company buy things because I was to lazy to research a problem. And I even built a dysfunctional Ethernet network (which they had to rebuild again after I was gone).
I never got in any trouble for anything. It was a paradise.
NASA announced discovery of a new solar system with three planets that could be habitable.
Lots of people bet on aliens. No aliens this time, sorry.
Still, any occasion to make people overexcited is good. Everybody getting excited means more money for NASA. And it's also good for morale. God knows what might happen If people run out of imaginary worlds and ideas that change nothing in their lives...
