Weblogs Inc. Down, Sunday Night Gremlins Win Again

Looks like every site in the Weblogs Inc. network has been down for the last 30 mins. Some are timing out, while others display Http/1.1 Service Unavailable.

I mention this for no other reason but to reinforce my theory of Sunday server syndrome. From my experience Sunday nights (and rolling into Monday morning) are notoriously bad for servers and websites. While organics take time to rest on the weekend, servers are left to continue their cycles. With less staff monitoring the systems over the weekend failures are inevitable.

You can check if your favorite sites are really off line here.

Updated: Over an hour later and they are back up, Pete over at Mashable noticed this too. Guess there isn’t much other news at 2am. :)
