CAAZone Problems

CAAZone has been experiencing some technical issues. They have asked me to post this statement for all of you guys that post over there:
"Sometime early on Saturday morning, our hosting company Myriad Networks (http://www.myriadnetworks.com) changed its primary DNS nameserver and "migrated" our website to a new server. They did this without giving us any notice. Not only has the website not come back up, their support has been unresponsive. Their phone numbers located in Sterling have been disconnected. We are furious, as you can imagine and we have spent much of the past three days working on this.

With the help of our good friends at SportsWar (thesabre.com,techsideline.com) and RichWeb.com, who also co-locate their servers at Myriad but were unaffected, we are slowly getting through to some of the people at Myriad who can help us. Our objectives are to:

1) Restore service
2) Get answers
3) Research our options for legal action (any pro-bono volunteers?)
4) Plan for the eventual move of the website to another hosting company

With any luck, CAAZone.com's original site will be restored in short order - but there is a possibility that this could be a longer term struggle. We will continue to email out updates to our friends, and Twitter under "caazone". The domain "CAAZone.com" will probably point to a status page until all of this is worked out. Look for that later tonight.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your support.

Chris Metsala, ZoneAdmin
and
David Pierpont, ZoneManager"

This is the result of a decision to go with a low-cost, lower-availability COLO. Playing with the big boys does not cost THAT much more. The end-result ultimately rests with CAAZone because they chose the hosting facility and provider--not the other way around. Does it suck for them, yes. Avoidable situation, yes.
