Didn't notice until 4:25 PM EST. Just got done working on some firewall rules and AA wouldn't load. I checked "is it down" and site confirmed AA was down.

 

I was starting to get scared. Co-worker of mine gave me a hug and a glass of water and told me to sit down, take my shoes off and relax.

 

After feeling a little bit better I went back to my desk and AA was back up.

 

That was scary man...

I'm guessing Al was upgrading the server.  I looked on Twitter to see if any news about it, but then lo and behold it was up again.  Oh and Happy Birthday, Al.

If only the website were running on a genuine Ataribox, this would never have happened!

Didnt notice, but I misread this topic as "did you survive the AA forums OUTRAGE of 12/27", and hurried to click what it was about.

As this is the only site I ever use, I thought my internet was down.

With an Atari Jaguar you wouldn't need a cluster. ;)

Well, one is not related to the other.  If you're seeing reputation voting errors, please start a new topic or reference an existing one and I can look into it. 

 

Thanks,
