As you might have realized due to infrastructure issues at our ISP the Duvet-Dayz web site was not reachable during the last 24 hours. Thanks for popping by again and sorry for the issues.

- Duvet-Dayz: Upgrade of site
- Duvet-Dayz: Upgrade of site 2
- Duvet-Dayz: Some Upgrades completed
- More that 350.000 web sites (DreamHost) back online after almost 8 hours outage
We are currently upgrading this site and it is taking longer than expected. New posts will be back during the second half of this week. Sorry for the delay…but that upgrade was overdue for more that a year and we unfortunately have to do most of it manually – meaning we have to touch each [...]
We are still working on the site upgrade and it now seems like there is light at the end of the tunnel. The first part of the upgrades should become available during tomorrow night or latest during next Monday. After that we will also be able to resume posting new stories to the site. Many [...]
We finally have completed the first part of our complete web site overhaul last night and can now start over again to post stories and news on interesting things.
There are still many glitches and issues e.g. with white spaces and differences between IE and Firefox or other web browsers but these will be gone once our new layout will be released within the next days. So far we have implemented the underlying “plumbing” and because of issues with some of the plug-ins we used in the past we were forced to touch every post we have written in the past two years.
Anyway we hope that the new layout and features that are now possible will compensate for the wait. We are currently also evaluating if we will make some of the new features – particularly the semantic web features in the pipeline – available as plug-ins for public use.
Many thanks for your patience and sorry for the delays. From today on we will do what we hope will let you all come back frequently to Duvet-Dayz.com – put up new stories and news.
Due to broken power cable the whole Dreamhost network was not reachable for more than 10 hours today. It just came back online. Not all the servers went down, but as DreamHost’s core routers and upstream providers are in that data center, there was no network to over 350,000 web sites during that time…
