Sorry for the outage Answered

Our data center had a series of problems that effectively brought Instructables, and a bunch of other servers, to a grinding halt this morning. But, we're back, the problems are isolated, and hopefully won't be repeated. Sorry for the down time!

Why would you throw it out the window? Wouldn't it be more fun to smash it with a hammer and make something new out of the parts?

hahahahahahaha! I read it as outrage also. I do that all the time and it cracks me up to the point of bursting out laughing in public once in a while. It's worth the stares.

(Maybe if I'd thought to check any other website while I waited, I would have worried less...)

No, the only way to find other webpages is by stumbling - and that may induce comas or may even cause extreme procrastination.

i think what you do is mis-spell instructables in the address bar. then your web browser sends you to other sites. some of them are supposedly very interesting.

I thought the WEB was dying....I had similar troubles getting into my ISP's email and a few other sites (my ISP was also having difficulties at that time), sometimes when it rains it pours.....

I hope you all thought ahead and printed out the Instructble on rebooting the Data Center so you guys knew what to do to fix it... Since it's fixed I guess you did!
