Today, around 1.30PM CET xkcd.com was barely reachable for me. The site had trouble loading, took about 5 minutes to just get the frontpage up and that was even without showing any images, and the forum just didn't respond (browser either timed out or tripped a timeout message from the firewall here).
About 15 minutes after that, the site started to load normally again for me (including images), but the forums gave either a 503 or an sql error after a long time loading.
You are carrying:
- a slightly paranoid Android
- two left feet (not my own)
- a still unfed and very hungry hippo
- broadsword of +5 ridiculousness stained with the blood of the undead souls
stetson Resistol, cuz stetson Resistols are cool.
