Ladies and Gentlemen, dear fellow pen nutters,
Quite a few datacentres were plagued today with outages due to problems with backbone connections to the internet, or rather, the equipment connecting the datacentres with the backbone. This outage started around 11:10 UTC / 07:10 EDT this morning.
Unfortunately FPN appeared to be hosted in one of the data centres which were affected. It also appears that things are fixed now, but we have been told that there still may be some intermittent problems.
Obviously there is very little we can do about this, but bear it and grin . At least we still have our fountain pens and notebooks to go back to, unlike many people who were looking for their favourite websites in vain - literally thousands of websites were down.
Anyway, we're back, and let's just enjoy again!
