———-

A widespread service slowdown/failure on Amazon’s AWS service (used by Seattle Avionics, Netflix, and tens of thousands of companies) is dramatically affecting all of our systems.  This is not unheard of but extremely rare.  Given the prominence of many of Amazon’s customers, these issues generally get resolved extremely rapidly.

We’ll keep you updated.  Services have been affected for about 25 minutes at this point.
