Blag/Blog is 503 Service Unavailable

Postby Draco18s » Wed Mar 12, 2014 3:26 pm UTC

I saw the link to the What-If book and clicked it
( http://blog.xkcd.com/2014/03/12/what-if-i-wrote-a-book/ )
And found that it 503'd. So does the main blag link. I also noticed that the above link is blog.xkcd whereas the main link is blag.xkcd. Not sure it matters, it was just interesting.

Same issue. It appears the blag is down for everyone. A ddos? At any rate, no doubt davean or Randall are aware. Instead of spamming refresh, just check periodically or check this website: http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/blog.xkcd.com
Also, blag/blog does not matter - they both redirect to the same place.
Edit 11:07 Central US (UTC-6): Blog back up!
Minecraft and Mathematics; dragons and dinosaurs; raptors and rotational forces

He probably slash dotted himself by mentioning the book.

Anyway, its back up, so, locked.

Actually, it was an update we did before posting it - had a bad interaction but took a bit to trigger. :(
Was indirectly because of it though.
