Meta: Is the site having problems tonight?

Submitted by mGrowOld on January 6th, 2013 at 8:16 PM

Is anybody else having problems logging on tonight?  I couldnt get on for several hours earlier and just now got the dreaded Gateway time out when I hit refresh.

Well I actually had time to play with my kids. It was the first time since the week after the loss to Ohio. But as soon as the site came back, they were again placed second in line for my attention!

And just in case...

This is the first time I've been able to load the page all day. I had a brief moment when I thought that might have meant we received a big name commit and the traffic shut things down.

The site was down for about two hours. It came back for a few minutes and then i got a Drupal, site maintenance notice.

Looks like we are back now! Thank goodness.

Yes it was down all afternoon. And you would have known this if you were a true MGoBlogger like me and had been refreshing every five to ten minutes for about four hours today, having pulled half my hair out by the time it finally came up.

Obviously the wellspring of ecstasy from the NHL Lockout ending flooded the MGoServers.

This isn't our world with hockey as a part of it, it's hockey's world and we're the bit parts.

UMHoops was down for the same period, and when MGoBlog came back for a few minutes, so did UMHoops.  And then both were down again, and both came back at the same time.

I know this as a fact b/c I've been sitting in front of my computer finding ways to procrastenate doing my term papers, refreshing both sites every ten minutes or so.

Strange indeed.  This seems too coincidental, no?
