Crooked Timber is Down
Kieran Healy notes on his own site that Crooked Timber is down.
Our transition to WordPress radically increased our database usage. Then we got a bit of an uptick in traffic on top of that and our host provider pulled the plug on us because we were gobbling up a lot of resources that needed to be shared. I have to say I think they were a bit peremptory about it. But in any event it seems weÃ¢€™re going to have to get a dedicated server now. Bit more pricey. Hopefully weÃ¢€™ll turn this around quickly and be back online soon.
Quite odd, indeed. CT’s traffic is comparable to mine and I’ve used WordPress for some time with problems only during two incredibly high traffic spikes. Let’s hope they get the problem fixed soon.
