AddThis not working...

AddThis.com without the CSS to beautify it.Somehow, today all our websites looked like there were running very slowly...

The problem was that it was trying to read the AddThis button and attached JavaScript code and could not do so because for some reason AddThis is currently down. It has been for hours so I'm writing this blog post in that regard!

It is the first time that I see AddThis down. It may have happened before, but the fact is I have never seen it before. The site still shows up, after all the necessary connections time out and it shows up without any styling (ugly Web 0.9 or something like that.)

No shame in having your system down, especially for small companies. That's a much bigger one though therefore that's strange that they would be down for so long. Anyway, CSS problems similar to this one did happen to us as two of our caches were not properly synchronized!

Hopefully it will be back on track tomorrow. I'll turn the feature back on at that time. If you have a Snap! website, you do not have to change anything. The button is still there, it is just removed from display to avoid the very slow display.
