I can't currently reach, and other domains hosted by the company that Northstar transferred to (OnRamp Indiana).

Can you?

Hopefully it will be sorted soon

    No, seeing DNS errors too.

    Likewise, I'm getting errors. I assumed it was just BL being BL, until Brickset wouldn't load either.

    BrickLink admin (Eric) has tweeted that there's been a power failure in the data centre.

    Yeah, Brickish died a couple of hours ago also.

    ^^ and no generator? Not what I would have expected.

    That's odd. We're not having storms here right now. (I'm in the same city as the servers).

    ^So they should just put out some lightning rods and connect the other end to the servers... :-)

    And now Brickish and Bricklink are back? Why not others, or are we now waiting for individual servers to boot up?

    Bricklink is backup. And is it it just me or vanilla forums servers are really slow and forum looks all messed up.

    ^ I think the forum style sheet is hosted on, which is unreachable right now, thus the messed up look.

    Oh good, I thought it was just me, I'm in China and was thinking, "noooo... not another site I can't access!".
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,334
    We're all back up now, as you can see.

    ^^ You're right. I usually switch the page template to use use one from another domain in such circumstances but for some reason I couldn't get it to work last night.
