Our instance—more precisely our whole domain—could not be reached from many places, among others from Belgium, between 11:00 and 16:00 today.
This has nothing to do with us, this is because the data center suffered a major problem with its backbone infrastructure; BGP session flapping causing most connections towards multimob to fall into a blackhole and time out.
Most of the problem seems to be fixed.
@lucia The reason you could reach me on Mattermost is because it runs on a separate server in another country.
@admin The servers were running file during the whole CenturyLink incident. But DNS queries were broken, and most people want to reach the server by its name rather than its IP address, of course.
