Our apologies for the downtime this morning
Some of you may have noticed that the site experienced an extended downtime this morning. For about an hour and a half this morning, most users were either unable to access the site or saw a "Site down for maintenance" notice. Unfortunately, we had a key server crash, and it took us much longer than we liked to recover from the crash. The good news is that everything on the site should be working properly now. If you are still experiencing any issues, please let us know and we'll look into them ASAP.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the downtime caused, and we're planning on making some modifications to our infrastructure to try to avoid similar downtime in the future, or at the very least, minimize the amount of time necessary to recover from a crash. Our top priority has always been to make sure the site stays up and loads as quickly as possible, so it was disappointing to us to have experienced downtime like we did this morning. We will do our best to ensure that such downtime happens as rarely as possible.
So sorry again for the inconvenience. We hope you're all enjoying the site otherwise.
Mike & Al
