Welcome back, everybody. MS was down for most of the day today. Our otherwise reputable colocation provider, the person that keeps our server hooked up to the internet and electricity, is to blame. They had a problem with their network which lasted until about an hour ago, when they fixed it. While they were checking to make sure the problem had been resolved, they pulled the plug on the server. Maybe they tripped on it, maybe they tried to reboot it by force thinking it wasn't their fault. Maybe they should never ever do that. My money is on option 3.
I had to repair some tables but it doesn't look like we lost anything. There may be some small issues (for example I have "1 new message" in my inbox even though they've all been read). Please report those in the appropriate thread
Sorry about the inconvenience.
