Outage! Oh noes!

March 9, 2009 2:13 am by brian

The our main shared webserver was getting hit by a DDoS attack this morning. After a few minutes of slowness and a few minutes of unresponsiveness we got it all straightened out and got a firewall filter in place to block traffic.

Oh no! Drive Failure!

It’s not that bad. Our main linux webserver had a drive failure, but thanks to our fancy hardware based RAID array, it emailed us. I scrambled over to circuit city, bought a brand new drive and repaired the array & now everythings good as new!

Outage Thursday morning (and other updates!)

Hey folks!

Just getting in touch to keep you abreast of whats going on at Logjamming. First and foremost, we’re doing a power upgrade on our equipment Thursday morning. The outage window will be from 12:30am until 2:30am with the bulk of that work being done around 1:00am. That means your site is going to go down for a few minutes (we’re sorry, really!) But any timeouts, etc should be sporadic and not last too long.

In other news, our new support system is almost online. Josh & I have been workinig diligently on the new ticketing system. Progress can be seen at Come monday of next week it should be online and we’re going to be using that little bad boy for all of our support jammers.

Our VPS service is really taking off! Thanks to everyone who’s signed up. It’s nice to roll out a new service and have people so stoked on it. Want more information on it, just ask, we’ll talk your ear off!

Finally, next month we’re going to be having a meet up in DC. Beers (and soda!) are on us! Come out and meet the folks who make your site work. Details to be emailed & posted soon!


MCI accidentally cut 2,000+ fiber lines today at 4pm

(or so we are told) …thus, we, among many others experienced extreme problems with our connectivity. Everything seems to be okay as of 8pm, but we wary – who knows what those sly devils may try next!

[update: 5 minutes later] Well, I am still noticing some lingering issues. Let’s hope they get it sorted out soon. More as it comes.

If you are currently experiencing site problems…

If you are currently experiencing site problems, make sure and check with the company you registered your domain with to make sure your “nameservers” are:


If they aren’t, simply log into the website for your registrar (the place you bought your domain name from) and swap that up. If you need directions on how to do that, check out this site: The company who makes them (“Demo Demo”) has lots of good tutorials and stuff like that, unfortunately we’re a couple of broke guys who can’t afford snazzy tutorials (yet) so you can get the idea from their samples. If for some reason, you can’ fit all 4, just put as many as possible. We maintain 4 for redundancy purposes so that if 1 or 2 (or 3….::ack::!) go down your site will stay up.

Finally, we also do domain registrations now too. It’s $10/year and we don’t have it fully automated yet, so if you decide that you want to take us up on the offer, shoot us an email at: and we’ll start the process. You’ll need to confirm you want to move it with the people you’re currently paying, but it’s relatively painless.
