4+ years as a loyal customer, and now treated like trash by @softlayer. Seems everything went south after The Planet acq. cc: @lavosby

Apologies for the outage this morning. Our datacenter @Softlayer had problems with networking hardware. https://t.co/lJCRpVQU

The site is back up and fully functional. Sorry about the downtime. The master database's network interfaces failed. @SoftLayer is on it.

A storm in Seattle has knocked out power for Softlayer's data centre, hence why we're dead right now ;) Hopefully it won't last long :)

@softlayer Please fix what's broken in your WDC datacenter. No one will tell me what's going on and it's getting really frustrating.
