Biting your own tail...

In short, something went majorly pear-shaped on Cartman, and that's why a good section of LJ was down.

They were going to put stuff in lj_maintenance about it, but... lj_maintenance is on Cartman.


End result, Cartman's back up, and the good news?
"Our inability to post to lj_maintenance during the outage led us to start thinking about a scheme where people’s journals are actually stored on multiple clusters, so a single critical machine failure wouldn’t cause a large fraction of our userbase to go read-only in a future failure."

There we have it.
