    This isn't applicable for a single site s all the sites were down for a few minutes. But they were restored back very quick. Not off-topic. Leaving open. – Nog Shine Oct 4 '18 at 18:41
  • @NogShine As far as I could tell, only SO is down, while all other sites are up. – Sonic the Bracketed Hedgehog Oct 4 '18 at 18:42
