I'm sure many of you were wondering why Lottery Post was offline for about an hour and a half.
The cause was a wide-area network outage with the provider servicing the data center in which Lottery Post is housed.
So you can relate, if you get your personal internet connection through Comcast, it's like Comcast stops providing you access for an hour and a half. It's the same kind of thing, but on a much larger scale.
These things happen from time to time, and fortunately it happened in the middle of the day this time, which means it got fixed a lot quicker than if it happened in the middle of the night.
(Yes, I am looking on the bright side!)
