I swear this happens too often. I get a notice that server maintenance will be taking place, and shortly thereafter, my server goes down. Now, I have no website and no email. I submitted the trouble ticket (maybe if I am lucky I'll hear back within 24 hours) and called them. After sitting on the phone 5 minutes, I was dumped into a recording saying to submit a ticket online.
Maybe the same problem affected TypePad today. It was down for several hours.
So, if you need me, use my gmail account: ealbrycht [at] gmail [dot] com. That seems to be working, if sporadically, which is better than not at all.
Is there a new worm out there or something????
UPDATE: Looks like everything is working again. Only took them about 5 hours. Sigh.
