Mark’s Daily Apple Server Issues

Apologies to everyone that has had a difficult time accessing Mark’s Daily Apple in recent days. Due to high traffic volume and technical issues I don’t begin to pretend to understand, we have experienced some site outages. Please hang in there as my team resolves this problem. Thanks, everyone!

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I was wondering about that. I was getting weird connectivity problems. Glad you’ve got it handled.

  2. Perhaps it’s a good thing. Your popularity caused an adaptation!

  3. “Due to high traffic volume…”

    Ohhhh!?
    We are winning. You’ll see. Grain companies are going bankrupt!

  4. Thanks, Mark. So often websites don’t acknowledge there’s a problem and I’m left wondering what’s wrong with my set up.

  5. As someone who works in the tech industry, I would love to hear more details about what actually happened, and the solution that was implemented. I’m sure there are some others who would as well.

  6. Sorry ’bout that. It was the million people I recommended this site to because it’s too awesome not to :-)

  7. Mark,

    Tell your team to check out CloudFlare.com. We use them for high traffic websites.

  8. Wondering if there are issues today? MDA is really slow to load and the forum is barely loading at all.

    Anyone else having issues?
