My @HostGator server came back up at 3:15am, after being unavailable for... 14.5 hr. That crushes my downtime record with @iWeb of 4 hr.
My @HostGator server has now been down 10 hours and counting due to network problems in their data center.
Discovered Mousetrap: a simple Apache-licensed library for handling keyboard shortcuts in JavaScript.
All bugs are shallow, given enough eyeballs... and a crowdfunded security audit.
