When you read this, it means the site is back on line after nearly 12 hours down.
Something happened Friday nigh around 2200 CET (1600 Eastern), and Expecting Rain was not
the only site that was affected.

Hostgator support said: UPDATE 2:00 AM CST:
We have identified a packet filtering problem in our core routing layer.
We have worked closely with our vendor to develop a global fix and are in the process of applying it.
While there will be clean up, we anticipate making quick progress to recover everyone
and expect services to be restored soon.

These were the longest 12 hours of this year for me :shock: - and I slept through 8 of them. :wink:
It's moments like these where we notice how soon we take something (like this awesome site) for granted. Thank you for everything! :D

Could this website downage be anything to do with Putin and the Russian's?

It seems very strange that we have had no denials from Moscow yet... to me, a clear indication of who is responsible.
