Wikipedia Is Down, And I Feel Fine

Wikipedia is down. I feel fine. My life is unaffected. I have no great anxiety or discomfort. Life will continue along, and the site will almost certainly return sometime in the future. This is apparently an uncommon feeling.

I was going to "retweet" the explanation on twitter by "Wittylama":

Not only is #Wikipedia down, but also Commons and everything by WMF. the AirCon is down in the server room in Florida - Overheating.

But the restrictions of Twitter put me off - it's not conversation!.

Update: There's a "wikimediatech" status feed

Update2: And it returns ... if you even noticed ...

As a low-attention user I have no anxiety on hearing about this the next day in my RSS feed :-/
