Default Outage Yesterday

Hello, forum members. You may have noticed an outage on the site yesterday for a few hours. Google Cloud Services experienced a pretty significant outage which impacted many online services and may have caused this site to be inaccessible to some members for a while. It appears all Google Cloud services have been restored. Our team monitored through the evening and into today. Everything does appear to be back to normal, though. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Carry on!

Sorry about that. I was only changing a light switch in “The Big Room”.

These new LOTO rules are a real PITA
