Oh Man o Man. What a Week. CyberHeadache and all!

By GoldyLocks

I wanted to do more. I wanted to help.

But, I could only stand back as our brilliant engineers worked to find the cyberproblem that was keeping Motortopia from loading up for many of you around the world. I just had to stand back and let them work.

We did a lot this week to upgrade the Motortopia data center. In our new world class location, we are getting ready for new developments at Motortopia. But, the last week, well, gave us all a cyberheadache.

The new data center is working great! But the gettin' there was a bit of a challenge.

My usual approach is NOT to blame other. We should all look at our own actions first, and take responsible action to fix the problems. But, I must say, that our team did a great job. Upgraded a data center in record time, and got things all hooked up with multiple backbone providers. And most things worked, but may of you could still not get to Motortopia.

We discovered some problems with a large upstream internet backbone provider. Someone there finally cared and we go this fixed.

We're back, but, oh what cyberheadache.

Thank you all for being online, sending in reports worldwide, and encouraging us all along this week.

Ok, back to bed to get some rest. Just checking to make sure the routes are working.

Motortopia is still here and goin strong.

Thank you, all my Motortopia friends!

Hi David
Glad this headache is behind you. Remember this: (if it does not kill you it makes you stronger) boy (what a crock that is) stress sucks when the cause is beyond your control it really sucks!
Take care,
