Quinterest is down

Quinterest is down

Postby idek » Fri Jul 28, 2017 1:42 pm

I was wondering what the status on Quinterest is? The page tells me that the site has "stepped out". What does this entail?

Guessing the host is dead, or Jacob's temporarily messing with the server/host configs.

If you just want to search for topics, aseemsdb (aseemsdb.me) is actually a modestly superior choice. (It's much less user friendly than Quinterest, but it actually has more questions archived.)

Thanks! I've been trying to look for tossups for stuff on the Lit frequency lists and this'll really help!

I have no idea what's happened with Rohit (I've emailed him), but I do have a backup of the site and the DB.

Any update as to why it's actually down?

Sorry, guys. The card that is charged for hosting had expired and I forgot to change it to a different one, so the host was unable to renew my hosting. This is fixed now. Quinterest should be back up soon (not entirely sure how long it'll take to be active again, but the hosting has been renewed).
