No. The last three weeks have, without a doubt, been the roughest at Dreamhost since I have been here (I started hosting here in August, 1998).
It is really unfortunate that users signing up in the last month have no way of knowing how cleanly Dreamhost has run, and have only seen massive problems.
I have seen “bad times” come, and go, before at Dreamhost and my experience has been that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” is true with Dreamhost. Those “bad times” have been very few, and far between, representing an insignificantly small portion of my hosting experience here. I believe that they will get things under control, will learn from the experiences of the last month, and return to the high level of service they have provided in the past.
I’m not going anywhere (at least until I’m convinced that Dreamhost can’t or won’t fix this stuff!).
