Pinboard is down

The bookmarking service Pinboard is down, and is keeping its users posted on the problem via Twitter: “Errors with our ISP seem ongoing despite sweet promises.” Before the site went down completely, I managed to catch this page:

[Muhammad Ali v. Sonny Liston, May 25, 1965.]

A service that respects its users and has a sense of humor about itself is a service I’m happy to support.

2:57 p.m.: Pinboard is back. The status page reports that “the site is running on a backup server with reduced capabilities . . . . All bookmarks are intact.”

8:25 p.m.: The circumstances behind the outage are the subject of a New York Times article.
