Site outage, browser check message 1/29/21

Hi folks we had a server issue today were offline for many hours. The site is up and running again. For a little while you'll see the cloudflare browser check message as we get organised again. Thanks for your patience...

That was a doozy.

Just FYI. It appears the iPhone and iPad ER.org apps are still not working. At least for me.

Thanks for the efforts to restore.

Yes... still tinkering. The site speed is also slow. Slow is better than dead so some improvement

Y'all, we can thank our lucky stars that Janet and the admin/tech team are on top of this unusual circumstance! They are such experts in what they do. Thanks SO MUCH, Janet and others.

Meanwhile, having retired from my admin duties several years ago, I can just sit back and know the problem is in good hands.

Android app has never worked for me on Pixel. It simply crashes. Not a new issue but a persistent one.

Could be - or maybe aliens or those implanted vax chips have come to life and are chomping their way through the ether?

There was an issue at the facility that hosts our servers. Still not entirely fixed.

I was wondering if Amazon or Facebook had been offended by some post on this forum, and shut it down!

Maybe lending part of your server to the Reddit crowd was a mistake.
