did the site go down temporarily today?

Friday, February 23, 2007 by unclerob | Discussion: WinCustomize Site Issues

Just wondering if the site went down temporarily within the last little while.
I noticed that the bootskin & wb sections were experiencing some incredible download activity, it had been a while since I had seen downloads#'s by skin for the day that high (the weekends are usually busier) and all of a sudden all of the download counts have been reset to zero and starting over again. Were the download#'s that had accumulated today lost because of this "reset" (don't know what other term to use). Usually the download#'s reset at midnight from what I've seen in the past and today it looks like it happened @4pm - 4:30pm CST. This isn't a huge problem but I was curious. Has anyone else noticed this?

- if I don't hear from you before monday, have a nice weekend!

Hey Rob, count from today was back to at least 10:00 am yesterday, the clich would have been not reseting at midnight, not the site going down.

Thanks for the update Cavan,
I knew something was off, the download#'s appeared to be very high - almost too high, it was like 1000s of newer visitors downloading from the site, much more than normal

- it was good while it lasted (I need an ego boost every now & then)
