AskTom down

I went to this morning and I was greeted by the ORA-01688 error. Take a look:

AskTom down

Coincidentally I was trying to read a thread titled: Stress test

Now, it looks like the site is back up and running.

    AskTom is so valuable to many people, including myself, even a 5 minute downtime gets noticed rather quickly. 🙂

    It wasn’t down for 5 mins!! It was down for almost 5 hours. If you look at the tkyte blog, the message there was posted at 02:29:20 AM EST and it was fixed almost at 6:00 AM EST(By my estimate). Of course, even Tom needs to sleep 🙂
