Saturday morning there are already two days fall Identi.ca , an error that comes curiously result of updating the site to Status.Net 1.0.0 , the software on which it sits.
Identi.ca now enter only leads a error message topped by a link to the blog of Status.Net, name of the developer and its product, which explains the circumstances .
Apparently, full upgrade to the new version of Status.Net, with a key version number such as 1.0.0, all fell apart because of some errors in a script and what was supposed to last a few hours repair leads all the same weekend.
The penultimate update of the restoration process information on the company blog, linked above, I kept very good taste: “If you really need of Status.Net, maybe you should download the code and assemble your own site ?”
Somewhat scary, considering that the entire infrastructure cloud-Status.Net including corporate sites, is down , not only Identi.ca, the most striking.
the next and last post there are already hopes that the situation will be resolved during the night (in the U.S., throughout the morning in Spain), so we just have to wait a little more to, among others, Identi.ca back to life, perhaps the social network Tux how many exist today, also the best alternative to Twitter (what would have happened if Twitter take two days fall?) .
Update: I made a mistake in the writing of this article that should be clarified: Identi.ca delay in getting back online not only due to the error mentioned , it only lengthens waiting more embarrassing for which claims to be-indeed, it is, the more serious alternative to Twitter. A weekend offline to update the platform? That business is called fudge.
You know I love many Identi.ca, much more than Twitter, not only for its Open Source nature, also have a more organized structure and especially the air we breathe geek, especially Linux user.
But one thing does not remove the other … Can you imagine the headlines that would give even the mainstream press, if they fell two days away from online services like Twitter, Facebook, Gmail …
Apologies if anyone has been confused with the first information. Hope has been clarified.
