It's been a while I had my blog up and running. This is a true story, names have been changed to protect the individuals.
It all started when I was at TechEd Europe in Berlin 2010. Before I left for Germany I started an update of my blog engine, let us just call it "my blog engine". This was running on a virtualizing platform of a brand I leave out, well it was in Beta 2.0 actually. I accidently forgot to add the license key for the platform when I was setting it up (upsetting perhaps?). To add for "the stew of misery" my hosting partner forgot mentioning a small upgrade that was about to happen. The rack(or racks actually) where my servers were secured was about to be well connected against the new and alot of nines more highly available external power supply. Well, the list actually continues a bit further and I guess you all get the picture.
Said and done. While I was working in my booth, as a representative for MCT Europe, I wanted to update the blog with an answer for a question I just got. I opened up IE on my laptop and entered the URL, http://blog.mssqlserver.se, and pressed return. A few seconds later I ended up in the Point Of No Return. No reply from my webserver?
