From our previous post, I’ve outlined the lack of resources as the main reason for the downtime.
But there’s actually more to it. After doing an extensive research, I found that it is recommended to have 1GB of RAM just to handle 2500 traffic alone, not including the http request and anything else. Obviously, 256MB was unable to handle all the traffics.

Hey guys, first chapter on the new site! I am still in the process of moving but expect it to be finished by this Friday. As I transfer I am also revising the past chapters. Nothing major changes, just making sure the story stays straight as some of you may have noticed some inconsistencies.
