HaloScan is Down Up

HaloScan has been down for 20 - 30 minutes.

We're trying to find out what's going on.

We can't get into any comment threads at all. We think HaloScan's database is offline.

Hubris Sonic and I are working to get this resolved. No time prediction yet.

Update 1:37 AM:

We're back up.

Don't know what happened. We may not know, HaloScan not always being especially forthcoming with the stitch. But the price is right and they keep upgrading and getting faster. We're going to call this a growing pain.

Sorry about that everyone.

Update 2:21 AM:

The outage was caused by an emergency database issue caused by a power failure HaloScan suffered the previous night. They are working on ways to notify us better in the event of future cases -- widgets, home page notices, and the like.

We were down for roughly one hour. And that... is that.
