I needed to check something at LookSmart today around noon EST - site would not load.
I reached out to a few other people in NYC and they all could not get access... hmmm interesting. So I got in touch with people through Gmail and found out it was not reachable in London or Hong Kong.
Now they had my interest. So I called - a bit of a panic over there.... one guy saying it was a production problem... well when the site is not live yeah the people in production are running around like maniacs... I know it has happened to our site.
The funny thing is no one had it online yet.... though there was one story that I thought was about this but turned out to be something completely different.
The Mail and Guardian Online had the top story when searching Google News: Searching for LookSmart was the story's title....
The Story starts: "A small blackboard and a pointed archaeologist's trowel lay on top of pauper's grave number 5 910 in Mamelodi West cemetery where Looksmart .......................... GETS YOUR ATTENTION but finishes ..................Ngudle's family hoped to find his remains".
I have had a call and as soon as the problem is fixed they will be back. I will update when they call me back....
Glad it wasn't in that pauper's grave - though it would have made a much more interesting story!
