outages --simon, Mon, 20 Mar 2006 19:37:44 -0800 reply

There were a number of outages today due to problems with the latest zwiki code, which should be fixed now. (and many other sites around the net) may have been unreachable for a while today due to DNS provider problems. Also things were very slow one day last week due to some misbehaving web crawlers.

Another outage today made all sites unresolvable for an hour or two, at least for me. :(

retiring old free zwikis --simon, Tue, 10 Apr 2007 00:08:56 +0000 reply

Free zwiki hosting users - I have begun retiring free zwikis that seem defunct, for example those that have not been edited in the last year. Let me know if I retire your wiki in error and I'll bring it back. The current active wiki list is at .

greetings --Simon Michael, Mon, 07 Jan 2008 07:40:53 -0800 reply

Greetings free zwiki users. As I just announced on GeneralDiscussion, I am currently working on some sysadmin tasks, which you should know in case there are glitches. I'm moving domains and sites to new providers, which will be in progress for the next week or two. Also I will be doing some cleanup of abandoned wikis, so if yours has been idle a long time and you want to keep it, let me know. I don't think any of you are very active users of this service at this moment - correct me if I'm wrong - but I'm also interested in any feedback or problem reports you may have.

Happy new year!

The server was down this morning due to a failure of memory-limiting and mail notification scripts. Sorry about that.

upgrade --simon, Thu, 29 Jan 2009 13:05:36 -0800 reply

I am about to move all free hosted wikis to the latest ZWiki branch, to simplify hosting and get more testing. I hope you will not notice, please report problems to GeneralDiscussion if you do.
