    And that would be the good part about going offline. You get to test your offline pages for errors! Feb 7, 2010 at 18:03

    Also the error page on meta asks me to report the error on meta. I then entered an endless loop and almost stackoverflowed (no pun intended) Feb 7, 2010 at 18:44
  • Way to focus on the important stuff ;-p Feb 7, 2010 at 19:29

    @Marc Gravell: Just imagine the server hadn't overheated -- this might have gone unnoticed for ages!

  • @blorg it is fixed. There are two sets of "offline" pages, one comes from HAProxy, the other comes from ASP.NET. Jul 12, 2010 at 15:39

I'd suggest waiting for http://meta.stackoverflow.com to come back up, and then report it here.

  • To those who are downmodding me, why? Is this a bad answer?

  • ... because this question was 5 months old and was marked as complete 4 months ago Jul 1, 2010 at 3:28
  • But it's still showing up as an unanswered question in the listing. So I provided an answer.

    Sorry, Chris -- it was the right idea... The "unanswered" list isn't too useful here on meta. I never engage in pity upvoting but I think one is legitimately warranted here, so please take this +10. It's our fault for having a weird "unanswered" situation on meta. Jul 1, 2010 at 8:40

    The recursion and dependency hell in this answer requires an upvote. Jul 1, 2010 at 14:50

    The irony is that a few days ago another user dropped an answer onto this question with the explicit intent of getting this off the unanswered list. 10K+ users can see it as deleted. :) So Chris, don't worry, you're not the only one who gave it a good try.
