Has the Raspberry Pi site been offline all day for everyone else?

I've tried from several different locations (office, home, mobile) and I've just been getting timeouts.  Finally back online now it seems.

Is this an indication of the increasing interest and upcoming demand?

It was down for everyone

I used http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ to confirm it.

Is anyone still unable to see the Raspberry Pi website? It's fine for some people; we suspect an outside ISP or DNS problem.




This is a quote from Twitter, roughly 3 hours old. The site was down twice today, at least for me, and at least two other sites that i frequent also weren't available, so it seems that it's not an indication of increasing traffic here.

It appears that Mythic Beasts (the website host) had a power outage problem

http://status.mythic-beasts.com/

Current Status

2012-02-19 15:57 — sphinx has just finished fsck and is now back up after it's unexpected power cycle.

2012-02-19 15:54 — All networking has been restored to hex-1 although we're now running in a degraded mode where some customer ports have been downgraded to 100Mbps. We have redundant routing but currently do not have redundant core switching.

2012-02-19 14:55 — our replacement switch, sw-hex-1-1, failed after roughly three hours of operation, tripping the circuit breaker on the power bar. We are now formulating a plan to replace sw-hex-1-1 for the second time today.

2012-02-19 14:27 — the power outage is affecting roughly half of the machines in hex-1, including one of the routers and switch. Machines in other racks may have experienced a brief network outage while the other router adjusted to route around the problem.

2012-02-19 14:12 — there has been a power outage affecting some machines in in hex-1. We have someone on site investigating.

2012-02-19 11:46 — our replacement switch is now in, our redundant ring is operational and routing is now fully redundant. We're now migrating customer ports to the new switch.

2012-02-19 10:52 — I have arrived onsite with a spare switch and have started the configuration and replacement.

2012-02-19 08:59 — we have confirmed the switch has failed with onsite hands. We're now en-route to the data centre to replace it, eta 10:30.

2012-02-19 08:28 — we've seen a failure of a core switch in hex-1. We've updated our routing configuration and services have been restored to everyone who isn't directly connected to that switch.

2012-02-19 08:13 — we've lost contact with virtually everything in hex, we are investigating.

Bear in mind though, that this outage was on raspberrypi.org - the forum, downloads, wiki etc. Raspberrypi.com - the shop - was still running

The Raspberrypi.org site (main page, forums, etc) is hosted by Mythic Beasts in Cambridge (they also have a host site in London) while the shop Raspberrypi.com is hosted by Bigcommerce servers in Austin Texas and/or Sydney Australia

Gladly I had the download site open all day long (as I have the homepage set as starting page), so I could download the debian-zip without any interference. I didn't even notice it was down before I tried to reload the page but my download was running already. Now the HTTP-download is unavailable again… Finally.. I was trying to use the HTTP-Download for ages now and never had any luck.
