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.

No offence taken. The internet is sometimes a curse, and a break is welcome. However, a site outage is not a break for us, since there is no rest till it is back up.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.
