Earlier today 'xserve', the server that hosts, and was experiencing load problems and was unreachable for a while. Usually these problems are caused by people who are trying to 'spider' a website for offline browsing. Measures to throttle the maximum number of connections are being taken so hopefully this will soon be a thing of the past.

Anyway, to whoever jumped on his bike to ride to the server location facility today (Ton, Marco, Stefan?): thanks for bringing xserve back to us!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
