Technically I haven't followed the instructions, but this way Charlie will get that electroshock prompt.

I think it's gone down. It went dead on me and it seems everyone else was getting kicked out as well. Now can't get back in.

It seems to only go down on monday mornings when everything updates, is there a link or is it the new server being installed?

Considering Charlie said that when the new server comes in, it'd be down for an hour, late at night, I think we can presume it's not that.

What's gone wrong? Apterous has been down since yesterday morning. Is it teething problems with the new server?

Some major issues tonight in terms of the site going down for a few minutes at a time, and then not staying up long enough to play even a single round, then going down again.

It seems like our domain host is having some trouble, because the site still works fine if you go to it directly ( http://81.149.128.31/ ), and it works for some people in some places and not others. Unfortunately it's out of my hands and their website is also down so I can't check what they're doing about it. I imagine it will work itself out by the morning.

Edit: their Facebook page is also full of angry people so that confirms it. Sorry folks, everything should be back to normal as soon as they pull their finger out.

Seems to be half down - homepage is up but moving very slowly - no-one seems to have been able to get in game for about half an hour though. It was glitching a heck of a lot yesterday, as well.

Looks like our IP address got changed, even though I'm paying for that to not happen... While I chase this up, I've pointed apterous.org to the new address, so it should reappear in the next few hours (not necessarily at the same time for everyone).

Quick update: it's a problem with our ISP, they're looking into it. Can't guarantee how long that will take; hopefully in the next few days we'll be back. Subscriptions will be extended accordingly.

Attempt 1 of 500 stuck at attempt 1 which is unusual.
