Blame some overzealous web crawlers.
Ever since the Lounge got off the ground, we’ve been crazy busy.
My guess (thanks to @NightOwl) is that we’re seeing some very energetic web crawlers, indexing everything in their new locations. It wouldn’t surprise me if that were the source of the “too many concurrent connections” crash very early this morning, Tennessee time.
Indexing is good for everybody. But it’s a pain in the neck, too.
I expect that we’ll see a return to normal snappy response times in the next day – or possibly a few hours. In the meantime, sorry. It ain’t broke, it’s just really bogged down.

If you haven’t seen this, it’s amazing. And scary.
Sometimes I think I should set up a news feed, here on the Lounge. There’s a lot of important tech stuff happening outside Windows Land…

Günter Born has a blog post on Born’s Tech and Windows World that looks into the question. He comes down solidly in favor of 1703 – even if it isn’t released until April.

Usage numbers are in, and there’s some mildly good news for Win10 fans.

Still not sure exactly what happened, but we had an overload a couple of hours ago, causing the site to spew “Service unavailable” messages.
“AskWoody as a service.” Has an interesting ring to it.
Anyway, as you can see, we’re back and chugging along. With the gates now open for direct questions, and 300 registered Loungers, I wonder what wonders await.
