We're back

As you probably noticed, we had an interruption in service this afternoon. It was caused by a power outage for Amazon Web Services.

But now there are no stories at the top of the index page. Have to go to the home page to see the stories, and then you can’t see the forums or discussions.

It might take a little longer for the content side to come back online, but all the forums should be working.

It’s hard for me to fathom that the outage was entirely an AWS issue as their redundancies are robust. Nevertheless, welcome back Kotter.

It was. Lots of chatter on Twitter about it.

The amazon popups swarmed the server and shut it down.

Nah. Russian bots.
