Making Communications Buzz

Minimalist Header Brought To You By...

For most of today, The McBuzzBlog featured a stark header with no images behind "Making Communications Buzz", due to the fact that an AT&T t3 line somewhere south of Pittsburgh was out of commission. Images for The McBuzzBlog are hosted at http://markmclaren.us, whose server connects to the Internet via that t3 line.

Some ISPs are more succeptible to outages than others. This is the third time in 12 months that this particular ISP has gone down, crippling the host of markmclaren.us Fortunately, mcbuzz.com is not on the same server, nor (obviously) is The McBuzzBlog itself.

It's always a good idea to have Web, or at least e-mail, hosting from two different suppliers who are not using the same ISP.

The mcbuzz.com supplier is pair Networks, a host who I have had very good luck with. Their customer service is quite good, although you cannot get them on the phone on the weekend.
