    ...because I couldn't access Wilders for at least half an hour, until just now.

    Yep, it was down for me as well. I did a check up and apparently it was also down for everyone else.

    When I loaded my browser this morning...since Wilders is my homepage...I was taken by surprise. Then I went to Time.is, and it was fine... Next stop downforeveryoneorjustme, and it was not loading, too.

    I checked status with three different "status checkers" and all of them reported site being down.

    EDIT:
    Those were status checkers:

    Eh I think it was just a server problem. Considering this website also serves as support forums for some products I don't think the admins are going to fooling around like that.

    It was a network related issue. The route to us had dropped out. The server was here and running fine, just no one could get to it.

    All I got from the Host was an auto-attended set of messages until this AM, way more than 12 hours later.

    It was an overloading of the network circuit on the host server - hypervisor(?) - We're hosted on essentially a virtual server that runs on a big, powerful real server that hosts many others. I guess you could call it a denial of service attack, but, I'm not convinced it was aimed at us specifically.
