Default Server down

Any ideas why the server was down for 5 hours this morning?

Are you sure it wasn't a local routing or DNS issue? I didn't get so much as a single sms message from The Planet's monitoring services.

Based on the gap in posts on this thread, looks like about 2:00 am to 7:00 am (Pacific).

Yeah that seems consistent with me eventually giving up reloading the page.

Oh, Thumbs was down too (which is probably obvious).

I just thought it was funny you were up between 2:00 and 7:00.

Ignore me. Nyquil has poisoned my soul.

Yup, from a little before 5am Eastern to about 10am. I noticed that Idle Thumbs was down the same hours.

Weird. Must have been something big. The Planet's monitoring services usually send me a whole flood of SMS messages when there're server issues. Whatever this was, it must have taken their monitoring servers down too. Backbone issue, maybe?

Well, I only brought it up because it seemed like a long time to be down. And everywhere else worked fine except here and thumbs. Shrug...

When I tried accessing AG and Thumb yesterday, MSN and another site were down too. Might have been a coincidence, might have been a backbone thing.

Maybe it's an omen? I hope not.

I had a problem too, yesterday. (I guess my yesterday is your morning... which time is it in the US?)

My guess would be that it was something that removed our server and the monitoring server from the internet without actually taking either offline.
