    ^ They're both loading for me (though Brickset loads an error page), but the speed is very slow.

    @Joseph, thanks! It is now almost 40 minutes later and I still can't load either websites. Everything else works fine so I know the problem is not at my end.

    It is likely an issue with the datacenter again. I know there has been some major attacks for some weeks now. I also run a few websites and although mine were only down for 30 minutes today, many people's sites have been down for days and service has been intermittent for weeks.

    I just read some updates on my server's forum and learned about some really crazy stuff going on. This is a pretty good summary from the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/27/technology/internet/online-dispute-becomes-internet-snarling-attack.html?_r=1&

    There have been a number of SQL server related issues lately which might be the cause again this time.

    There are issues again today, the web host says there's a problem with the firewall that's causing it.

    Are there issues again today? I get a "This service is not available" message.

    Not working for me either. I am on an Ipad.
  • MrBerreMrBerre Member Posts: 246
    Works again now.

    Yes the were some issues earlier that I won't disclose here, but they've been addressed now.

    Main site is down, appears to be affecting multiple servers, according to Eric at Bricklink.

    Looks as if there are problems at the data centre again, Brickset, Brickish and Bricklink are down as I type...
