Dangerous Work

February 1st, 2005 · No Comments · Sidekick

Danger did some maintenance this past weekend on some of its network infrastructure used to support the Sidekick. The way the Sidekick works, Danger acts as a giant ISP with various proxies and servers which optimize connections for web and instant messaging, and email. As the Sidekick has gotten more popular, people have been complaining about performance. I personally haven’t noticed any problem, though the web browser has never been sprightly.

After this weekend’s maintenance, though. I definitely noticed a big difference. Now, nothing works. Email is delayed for hours, the web browser times out constantly, and I’m kicked off AIM with an error message telling me I’m logging on too much and to try later.

I’m sure this stuff will get sorted out in the next day or two, but it’s pretty annoying, and there’s no official information from Danger or T-Mobile to be found about these problems. The past two days have made me realize how generally reliable my Sidekick has been, and how much I use it. I really notice when it doesn’t work, and generally, it works.
