I was testing my app, and it didn't seem to load the csv requested from https://data.stackexchange.com/, so I tried visiting the site myself. It wouldn't load. I tried again.

It's not loading. What's wrong with it? Are they updating the site? Does this usually happen?

What I'm thinking is that they ran out of bandwidth.


The site is back up now, and I realize I was kind of greedy for expecting 100% uptime.

    What makes your app THAT sensitive to downtime? We obviously try not to bring things down unless necessary or unless something goes wrong, but we also don't really guarantee uptime. Your app should gracefully handle any issues on our end.

    Give it some time, no site has 100% uptime. If you see DE down for, say, full hour, then bring it up here. Commented Feb 4, 2014 at 23:26

Not really sure what the problem is but the site appears down:

Just checked it on: http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/data.stackexchange.com.html

and got:

Data.stackexchange.com is DOWN It is not just you. The server is not responding...

enter image description here

Also check on: http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/data.stackexchange.com

and got:

It's not just you! http://data.stackexchange.com looks down from here.

EDIT: Now it is back online
