As many of you have noticed, comments are still unavailable for many readers as of this morning. As you may have heard there’s been a major and on-going outage at Amazon Web Services (AWS) going back to yesterday morning. In addition to the Amazon where you buy stuff, they have a major secondary business selling (“cloud-based) web hosting services. And their outage has either brought down or seriously disable sites across the web.
Luckily for us we only make pretty limited use of AWS. But the effect it’s had on us is that login and comments are still down for many of you trying to access the site. We’re working on getting them back up as soon as possible.
