Website Migration Nightmare
THE INCOMPETENCY OF IT ALL
The day is August 17, 2017. We have a major public facing website hosted by, well, let’s call them Dumbfucks. I can tolerate some idiocy, but holy moly this was some next level shit. So Dumbfucks migrates our website and tells us, “Hey the migration is complete! You can change your DNS records now! Some things aren’t working but don’t worry we’re working on them!”
Of course, they made the things sound very minor in their e-mail, but then you load the page and… What the fuck? Our navigation bars are completely broken. Not a single link works. Our site is essentially broke as fuck and completely useless. Oh, and you have to type in www into the address like it’s old school interwebs again. And they tell us we can’t just finagle the DNS CNAMEs and shit because of their load balancing setup. Okay, whatever, but what the fuck, did you Dumbfucks even bother testing the new servers before migrating live websites? Because we are legit not the only website that’s broke as fuck. I stalked their social media and found other websites with the same completely fubared sites as we’ve got, so at least other people are fucked besides us!?
Oh, and the best part is, today is August 20th. We’ve been e-mailing them demanding some ETA or any fucking response to indicate they’re even there. Nothing. NADA. Not since August 18 around noon. If it were up to me, they would be fired. Oh wait, their Glassdoor was a holy shitballs low 1.3 stars out of 5, so obviously everyone who was competent is already looong gone.
DRACARYS THESE DUMBFUCKS
