Linod backup saved me Thanks
> PingdomAlert UP:
www.mydomain.com) is UP again at 11/05/2010 12:14:52AM, after 9m of downtime.
Although I participated in the beta, but I just re-upped the paid version about three days ago. i dodged a bullet. Google would have punished me severely had my server been down all day (it happened late in the evening), and I had to work today. I have other backups also, but the Linode back up was so easy and so fast.
Sorry for the long post, but I was thrilled with how it worked!
Linode is simply the best!
