DcarnegieTraining is Back Online

After overcoming some mighty challenges, the team at Dreamhost finally got the dead server replaced and all of the data either restored or transfered to other servers.

This means that our seventh site, DCarnegieTraining, is operational again with all of it's content in place. I'd like to say that we got lucky. But when you dig past luck, you typically find a group of dedicated individuals who work tirelessly and creatively to make things happen.

This event was no different.

They may not face the same physical challenges as the the guys that go out in the cold to repair power lines or the crew that goes out in the middle of the night to repair water mains, but when your infrastructure is down, somebody is under pressure to bring it back up. When you take into account the size of some of these servers, and the complexity of the configurations, you get a better appreciate of what some of these guys have to go through.

So here's to all of the guys in the back office who work tirelessly to keep our front offices running, but typically get no recognition or appreciation for it.

Thanks guys.
