    Our cloud services provider, Amazon.com, suffered some kind of big network failure this morning, knocking hundreds of websites offline, including QRZ. The outage lasted about 2.5 hours and it looks like the worst of it may be behind us.

    You can read more about it here, at <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/22/aw...t-heroku-reddit-and-others-heroku-still-down/">TechCrunch.com<a>

    Meanwhile, it looks like QRZ has returned back to normal and things are running smoothly at this time. We would not be surprised if a few more hiccups take place throughout the day, but for now we'll keep our fingers crossed.

    Thanks everyone for your patience.

    Hate to say we told you so. The cloud is not immune and or impervious to failure.
