Since Monday, I think about the time when all Stack Exchange servers had been in read-only mode, http://stack2rss.stackexchange.com/ has seemed to be dead.

Did I miss the announcement about its closing, or is there hope for a cure?

If this was intentional, all answers mentioning stack2rss here and on all subsites need to be edited!

  • @PopularDemand Sorry, but I cannot agree with your retagging: It is in my opinion a really unpleasant situation, but clearly not a bug or you use this in a much wider meaning than I do. – Speravir Nov 1 '12 at 18:53

    Well, you're saying that an SE URL that previously functioned is no longer functioning. Sounds like "hey, your site is broken," which implies [bug] to me. I could see how this might be considered a support request in a broad sense of the term. However, on this site, the [support] tag is used only for posts about how to use a site feature (e.g. "how do I vote on a post"). This is obviously not a feature request, so the [feature-request] tag would be inappropriate. That leaves [bug] and [discussion]. I could go for [discussion], but [bug] seems to fit better. – Pops Nov 1 '12 at 18:58
  • As you can read in the answer, it is due to force of nature, hence “bug” does not fit at all here I would say. So I would leave it totally out. – Speravir Nov 1 '12 at 19:06
  • Ah, now I see the problem … OK then you’re unfortunately right, that of these four tags bugs is the “best”. – Speravir Nov 1 '12 at 19:12

Projects such as Stack2RSS and the Election Statistics page didn't make the long journey cross-country to Oregon when the network failed over, so they're unavailable until the NYC data center is operational again or they're manually moved.

Currently there's no known ETA for the transition back to NYC, but you can keep up-to-date on developments by following the Server Fault blog, as well as the Peer 1 recovery forum thread.

In light of this indeterminite downtime, our resident disembodied head has also been asked to remind the sysadmins about these services, so there's an implied chance that they may join the rest of the network on the West Coast should the situation in NYC not quickly improve.

    Oh, I see … I didn’t know, that the data center is in NYC, so another Sandy victim, hopefully temporary. – Speravir Oct 31 '12 at 15:41
  • Thanks for the edit, useful for the future – but hopefully not necessary. ;-) – Speravir Oct 31 '12 at 15:58
  • FWIW, there's no known ETA for NYC to get back to being NYC. – casperOne Oct 31 '12 at 18:53

    There's also some updates at status.squarespace.com – Kyle Trauberman Nov 1 '12 at 19:16
  • Personally, I'd have been assisted if stackapps.com/questions/1599/… had been edited to reflect the acknowledged downtime. – MattH Nov 13 '12 at 17:10
