Profuse apologies for the outage today. Unfortunately, contrary to our own arrogance, our servers were unable to handle the traffic today, and repeatedly went out of service. All attempts to revive were futile. We were left with no alternative but to double the existing networking and computing hardware, to bring the servers up. All of this took 6 hours.
Once again, sorry about this. This was an unscheduled outage, and we shall investigate to make sure this does not happen again.
