Software developers around the world are weeping tonight because AWS is down. This means Heroku is down, and that means a whole bunch of other sites are experiencing some serious outage.
To be honest, this is upsetting but it happens. Guess which site is not down though? Good ol’ tilomitra.com, running on old-school shared hosting on a LAMP stack.
Sweet, my basic $7.95 hosting provider is still up, and has been for the last 3 years. Take that #AWS.
