Downtime Sunday morning, April 12th

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

DU experienced some technical difficulties this morning starting around 8am ET. We brought the site down for maintenance while we worked on the issue.

The site is back up and running for now, but we are still investigating the issue and may need to bring the site down again for more work.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Hit the panic button today, when I was unable to get DU. All is well, so far. At least now if you have to shut down again we will not feel so panicked.

34. My poor friends tried to get their LOL Cats this morning and couldn't

They were so sad, It was like the Easter Bunny didn't come. Fortunately for me, I read it and sent out the email before the site went down. DU comes on Sunday morning before coffee and the paper.

the worst of course on 08Nov2016 when i was alone in a hotel room in Philly, trump was winning, and then DU was gone.

i'll never forget feeling so distraught and so alone. over the past i guess 17 years this has really been solidified as my home on the web. thank you for that.

38. Elad, you may already be aware of this, but it was happening intermittently yesterday too.

Late afternoon-ish, MDT, I ran into the same error for 2-3 minutes, then the site came up just fine.

No idea whether that's relevant.

helpfully,
Bright

63. Don't forget to put a mask and gloves on the 'puters next time!

Also, make sure all servers are 4 meters apart.

Coronavirus is mainly spread by Fox, but they could be making a mutation that runs on *nix.

All seriousness aside, thanks for keeping the DU hits coming -- some of us have terrible withdrawal symptoms!

One clarification: DU was acting funny even last night (meaning Saturday night) at around 6pm Pacific. I don't know if it was related to what happened this morning, but it was painfully slow last night.

Hope all goes well!
