Tourneytopia's Recent Outage

Talk about bad timing! This morning, I woke up to reports that Tourneytopia was down. I immediately checked it out, and sure enough, that's exactly what we were dealing with.

Digging deeper, our SQL Server went down - well, something like that. We don't know if went down or if it was a planned outage. Our host, WebHost4Life, informed us they were working on it, but three hours later, we still hadn't gotten any details about what was going on. We asked to be moved to a different server, but never heard anything. By the time we got a response, the site was back up.

While any downtime is upsetting for us,?I guess we have to look on the bright side - this would have been a killer (for us and our users) had this outage happened a couple of weeks ago, when we were accepting picks.

On the bright side, though, it's back up, and now the What-If scenarios are available. We even revamped the what if page - you now see the top five standings right on the scenario list page, rather than having to click through on each scenario to see the standings.
