April 19 brownout

in Feedback edited January 2014
Okay, it doesn't rank up there with the Great Blackout, but I've been unable to connect to AI for hours today, usually getting a "database problem" screen or a message that the server was under tremendous load for the forums were turned off.

Given that nothing was announced, I find it hard to believe a conference call is causing that kind of server load. Anybody have an idea of what's going on?

    Is there something wrong with the search function?

    Everything I search for comes up empty.

    I encountered the same problems with the database. I don't know what it's up, because I am not in charge of the server. Sorry for the disagreement.

    Some topics such as this one Apple's Safari showing major growth amongst browsers are giving me the following error:

    "There seems to have been a slight problem with the AppleInsider database.
