Thank You

In the last 24 hours you may have been unable to reach either the LiveSurface site or sign in with Context.

Late last night our data center (the provider that hosts the hardware that powers our web site and Context Surface Store) was running some server updates when they had a hardware issue that took their entire data center offline. We don't know the exact cause yet but this hardware failure prevented a large number of companies from providing their services throughout last night and most of the day today. Unfortunately, this group also included LiveSurface.

We'd been considering an upgrade for some time. So, once things came back online we immediately moved our site and Context services to a new upgraded server at a new data center.

Now that we're settled into our new home, and on our shiny new server, we wanted to say thank you for being awesomely patient and very understanding. There may be a few minor hiccups from the move so please let us know if you see anything that isn't working perfectly for you.
