Apology for Tonight’s Technical Difficulties

by ARLnow.com | May 1, 2012 at 10:32 pm | 1,333 views | 18 Comments

ARLnow.com suffered technical problems around 6:30 tonight and we’re still working to get everything up and working again.

Articles and the home page were inaccessible from 6:30 until about 10:00 p.m. As of 10:25 p.m., we have restored most of the site, but we’re still trying to recover articles, comments and forum posts from the past 24 hours. Please be aware that there’s a risk that comments posted between tonight and tomorrow morning may be lost as we work to recover data.

We apologize to our readers for the inconvenience and promise to do our very best make sure technical problems like this don’t happen again.

Update at 8:15 a.m. – It appears that comments and forums posts from yesterday morning to yesterday evening have unfortunately been lost. We sincerely apologize for this.

Update at 9:20 a.m. — We have temporarily taken down the “Latest Top Stories” section of the homepage. It will hopefully return later today.

  • Clarendon papa

    Is Arlnow ur full time job? Because of the ads and all that.

  • Loocy

    I’m glad it wasn’t just me! However, for the past few weeks, I’ve been getting a lot of random “cannot connect” messages from arlnow, even when signing on outside my home network, and that still seems to be a problem. I don’t know if it’s a capacity problem or what, but it is annoying.

    I’m glad it wasn’t just me! However, for the past few weeks, I’ve been getting a lot of random “cannot display the web page” messages from arlnow, even when signing on outside my home network, and that still seems to be a problem. I don’t know if it’s a capacity problem or what, but it is annoying.

    And it keeps timing out when I post this message too…

    Can you comment on the reports circulating that your site was targeted by anonymous because of the whole “new jobs” fiasco?

    • SomeGuy

      Are you suggesting that drax is part of Anonymous?

      • drax

        I am not Anonymous, though I am anonymous.

  • nom de guerre

    I had heard similar reports but was unaware it was attributed to anonymous-my sources indicated that it may have been drax.

    • JamesE

      My trusted sources at the DIA tell me it was FREDTERP

      • Swag

        FREDTERP tells me it was the DIA.

  • ShoeiJoe

    I blame the perfect storm of Callista and Mitt’s hairdryers.

    Don’t apologize–If you’d seen them, you’d realize we’re better off without them.

  • nom de guerre

    A unreliable source informs me that the moderation software was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the word “new” yesterday and this may have contributed to the technical difficulties.

  • sunflower

    if you think the “new jobs” was a fiasco, just do a search on “tax breaks for corporations that promise jobs”

    the “fiasco” is the wool being pulled over our eyes by some corporations

    • drax

      Hey, sounds like you got my point yesterday!

      • Ballstonienne

        Talking to yourself again?

      • sunflower

        my density isn’t that of arlington
