We had an unusually prolonged service disruption today; I know very little about what the problem was, or its cause, but I do know Gawker Media staff noticed it immediately and were working on it, late into the afternoon on a Sunday. Everyone's frustrated by such problems, but I hope they know that, at least from the writers, that we appreciate the hard work on a day off.

For the readers, we're sorry that many of you had trouble seeing what we had to offer today. Kotaku continued to post normally under the idea that whenever this blew over, folks would join their regularly scheduled programming, already in progress. Please do catch up with us now that everything's back to full strength.
