Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 guess the title says it all.

For both StackOverflow and Meta here, whenever I search for something, I get taken to the "Oops! Something bad happened!" error page, regardless of what I search for.

From the HTML comment:

Actual error: Invalid column name Url.

As noted in the comments, this is fixed.

Honestly, I can't find what triggered it.

Let's just blame Hurricane Sandy.
