PBwiki is temporarily down due to an unexpected networking hardware problem with our upstream internet provider. The operations staff onsite are working with an on-call technician from the hardware vendor and their upstream link to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

Your wiki is safe, and there is no risk of data loss. Our servers are fine but they currently can't connect to anything outside of their building. Yes, we love you and yes we miss your wiki as much as you do. It'll be back in a flash.

Our production servers are located in San Jose, California. You are reading this message on a development machine located in San Diego, California. There's currently no wiki data here but we have enough offsite infrastructure to show this message.

We've temporarily remapped addresses to this message — otherwise you'd just get a timeout in your browser. We have a roadmap plan which includes the capability to cope more gracefully with this type of (rare) event in the future.

Thanks for your patience,
-Nathan Schmidt / PBwiki CTO
