Did someone unplug the chat server to plug the vacuum cleaner in to get the ants out of the keyboard?

  • works for me... – studiohack Mar 14 '11 at 20:52
  • @studiohack: Perhaps works for people that are already there, but it is down. – Tamara Wijsman Mar 14 '11 at 21:05

  • @Linker3000: that was precisely my thought at one point lol – studiohack Mar 14 '11 at 21:32
  • Well - this seems as good a place as any to chat...? So much for redundancy and fault tolerance eh!? – Linker3000 Mar 14 '11 at 21:35

Edit: We've got news!

Our data center in Oregon (which hosts chat, but not SO), is currently down.
The guys there are working on it.
