Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I tried to log in several times just now (via the StackExchange OpenID service), but my login attempt failed. I got an error message like this:

"An error occurred on the server

This event has been recorded.

If you believe you encountered this message in error, please report it."

(with showing in the address bar, and with "please report it" a link going here)

After retrying multiple times I was eventually able to log in successfully. So, I don't know if this is a transient issue or not, and I don't know if I can reproduce it -- but I thought I'd report it in case it is helpful.

With the whole Sandy-induced NY -> OR data center failover, I can't recall exactly what issue would have been affecting you but I'm pretty confident it was temporary and has been fixed.

OpenID logins should be functioning normally for everyone.
