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

That's cool, you can't control evrything, I thought it was my computer at work, I was scared and kept asking my coworkers, "Is your internet ok?" "Are you able to check your email?", and so on. Just glad to have it back, withdrawals are all gone!! Keep up the great work Mike & Al, and love this site!!

Crap outta our control happens. Thanks and kudos to you guys for getting it back up and running so quickly! I did panic a little when the maintenance screen I saw said MFP was down until 10pm PST - that is 1am EST!!! lol :)

I immediately went to your Twitter page, but there was no news. Maybe something to consider in the future.

I was just glad to see it up again - even the biggest sites with the most financial backing and hundreds of highly-paid gurus onboard are down now and then. Thanks for fixing it so we can get our MFP "fix"! :smile:

I joined about a week ago and when I tried to get on the site it said I had wrong sign in information so I had it sent to my e-mail address and it was the same as I had and I cannot get on...I guess I do not want a system that is that weird...
