Hi everyone,

Last night, at around 4:48AM EST (1:48AM PST) our hosting company had a network outtage that took down all the AudioMart sites.

The outtage lasted until 9:00AM EST (6:00AM PST) but was intermittently "working" sometime after 8:00AM EST (5AM PST). Unfortunately, during the outtage, some of our nightly maintenance tasks were running and because the network connections were down, caused some corruption in some of our files, so when the network outtage ended at 9AM EST the site was still "down" until we could fix it around 2hrs later.

This kind of extended outtage is unusual for our hosting company, so I'll be trying to reach them through the week to get an idea what happened. Further, we'll be exploring ways to reduce our chance of damaging the site during overnight maintenance if the site doesn't have network access. Outtages at the Network and Hosting level are "utilities" level problems beyond our control unfortunately (much like a power outtage due to down power lines) and these companies always have multiple layers of redundancies to avoid the type of problem we experienced last night, so we want to make sure those utilities services are robust and find out what went wrong when they have any problems.

Everything *should* be back to normal now, but if it isn't you may let us know in this thread.

Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks as usual for your patience!
