The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Life could be a dream

I hesitate to say that DreamHost, which has been the home of since the last day of 2001, ever takes my advice on anything, but they've definitely filled out one item on my wish list: they've put up an ongoing status page, off their regular network (in case they go down or get DDoSed), with RSS feeds.

If it saves me just one instance of "What the hell is going on here?" it will have been worth it, I say.

You've said it. It was almost like they kept the page a secret for awhile. My site went down 3 weeks ago, and I went to the main page of Dreamhost and could not find one "status" link anywhere. Fortunately, my brother Joe ( had the URL. BTW, he is a big fan of yours. How do you find the time to post so much? :-) Good stuff.

There were never any announcements on the main page; they were always tucked away behind the Control Panel.

And I don't write that much; it just looks that way because of the ingenious use of white (actually sort of beige) space.
