Experiencing downtime (updated)

A few of our servers appear to be down. We’re looking into why now with our ISP. We hope to be back up and running shortly. Thanks for your patience!

Updated 1:29pm EDT: We’re dealing with 2 drive failures. Our data center is troubleshooting now and hope to have us back online shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Updated 6:33pm EDT: We’re in data recovery mode. This will likely be a time-consuming process since we’re dealing with several hundred thousand images files. We’ll update as soon as we have more information available. Thank you for your patience during this outage.

Uh-oh, we goofed up! We  just learned that today’s Art of the Day selection had a syntax error in the database and the page wasn’t displaying properly. Our extreme thanks to the early birds who wrote to let us know! In case you missed it, here’s Carmen Trueheart’s piece which epitomizes this week’s theme “Little Things.”  Look for more little things via EBSQ’s AOTD all week.
