I've been getting a lot of trouble connecting to site and/or can't find server error for STP over the last few days. My internet is okay and everything else is loading. I was wondering if anyone had the same experience?

we did have a small interruption because the stp domain was suspended (stupid whois info needed to be 'updated' even though it hasn't changed in like 15 years). this was solved day before yesterday though. if you're still having issues send me a screen shot and i'll do some investigating.

It has had a long history of 502 Bad Gateway, Cloudflare, and other errors recently as many times as I been keeping up. I'm sure Matt knows what he's doing, but the creeps that run their web hosting services don't. All I can do is sit back and see if the hosting services can at least fix themselves. And if not, they will be flooded with negative customer reviews!

it seems unlikely that it is related to our hosting. we've been with linode for 5+ years without much issue.

I think it's my ISP. My cell phone connects to the site properly but my house internet doesn't. I've also noticed the same issues with a few other sites.

who's your ISP? you could test your theory by using a VPN. my ISP was inadvertantly blocking one of my other websites (matthewderrick.com) but when i called them to complain about it they fixed it. so, maybe a phone call might help?

I already called them to fix it. They where having some issues apparently. Everything seems smooth now.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
