Dear Omiru Readers,
It’s been a long (and sleepless) couple of days, but I’m pleased to announce that we’re back up and running.
Our web hosting provider, Open Source Host, dropped our account without any advance warning on Wednesday afternoon. Yup, that’s right. No warning emails, no courtesy notices. Open Source Host claimed "high CPU usage," but they weren’t able to identify the source of the issue. They were, however, very insistent that our account should stay shut down! Six phone calls, three support tickets, and no answers.
With no info to go on, we set out in search of a new hosting provider. We’re now with HostMonster, and we’ve spent the last day and a half doing data migration and fixing bugs to bring the site back up. We’re not all the way there yet–as you can see, we’re having some character issue problems, but we’re working on a fix for that as well.
Thanks for all of your support, your emails, and your offers to help. We love you guys, and we’re looking forward to bringing you more fun fashion finds and style info in the months and years to come!
See you soon,
Trisha and the Omiru Team
Update: Just fixed the character encoding issue. Time for sleep! (2:16am - 1/20/08)
