I have been miffed, annoyed, and generally frustrated by the way in which Skymarket, the ISP who (thanks to FUNK) host Blog of Funk, dealt with (rather FAILED to deal with) the death of one of their servers.

NOT ONLY did the thing fall over several times over the last 3 months already resulting in many hours of downtime, but when, having given many notices of it’s intentions to quit, the old tin can finally ran out of coal, there was no recent backup, and so for the last 18 hours, this blog has been dated 22nd November 2004. The fact that some fool thought it was OK to restore out-of-date files rather than alert the client to the situation beggars belief. Bad customer relations, bad PR.

I am PARTICULARLY pissed off that nobody saw fit to even email me, and it was only the fact that I called them at 6pm last night that meant I had an idea of what was going on.

Since all the images are hosted on the same box, there will be (once this is republished) many images missing which I will have to find and upload once more.

I’m going to press “PUBLISH” now, let’s hope this works. Apologies in advance for the missing pics, check back later and they will probably be there.

Fucking bollocks would be an appropriate phrase at this juncture.

    Now, I wondered why your blog wasn’t loading last night…I thought it was my connection.
    Bah! to ISPs and their wilful indifference.
    Hullo by the way.
