The internet is brittle

If you tried accessing the site for a while it was probably showing a 502 Gateway Error. Turns out Cloudflare (DNS provider) and DigitalOcean (servers) were both down. Not sure what percentage of the internet use them, but it's a pretty significant chunk. Lots of small to medium sized sites use them, they are very popular among developers.

    Yeah, quite a few sites seemed to be down.

    remember when you said that whenever you decide to shut this site down you were just going to do so, without warning? thought this was it...

    LOL, I did say I was only kidding and would give at least a months warning.

    I knew something was up.  ShareASale, Hubspot, Wickfire, and a bunch of other sites I frequent for work were also down.

    If you're cutting grass, I see no problem with this. In fact, I'll even suggest that it should be mandatory haha!

    Agree. I don't have any issue with CC's breakfast beer. If I was a teacher I'd have them a lot in the summer especially after a nice morning run.

    Facebook is trash, but it's also happening on Instagram. How am I supposed to browse memes all day?

    Facebook is trash ...

    I know this is true, but it makes me cringe, because I still use it.

    Instagram is trash as well, and thankfully it's not happening on Snapchat

    Oh I definitely browse, and my friends and I use it for event invites, etc. But I probably post a status or photo about 4-6 times/year these days.

    I guess I still prefer to write things instead of putting up pictures.  Plus, a lot of people I do business with are easier to reach on there than anywhere else.  Otherwise, I'd probably be migrating to Instagram.
