Black Friday is coming this week, but why wait? We decided to start the celebration right now. Each year we have something special. This time it's no different. Let's get to the point:

Wow. It was an intense weekend. I have already blogged about the first edition of Startup Weekend Toruń and it actually did happen! And man, it was awesome. How much awesome? Check out this short movie!

Thanks to organizers who asked me to mentor the teams. I really enjoyed it (you can see me in the movie too) and I believe the teams benefited from my experience and tips. I am also happy that Wikidot could support this initiative.

Last Friday I started drafting a new blog post about Wikidot server uptime. Every month Pingdom sends us a monthly report with average response times, uptime summaries for various checks we have. The numbers are always stellar — something around 99.99% uptime with only a few minutes of detected outages.

Friday night, a thriller story

Our infrastructure is pretty stable and resilient, so I was hoping to get 100% uptime on November. Suddenly on Friday evening we started getting various alerts, from Pingdom, CloudWatch and other services. Something was wrong. Wikidot was slow — loading a page could take up to a minute, sometimes pages could not load at all. Pingdom alerts acted like crazy — various wikis went down and up radomly.
