Been trying to get through to Gizmodo whole morning but failed. It seems that the data center that is hosting the sites is down. Oh Sandy!
Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, Gawker’s sites including Gizmodo, and other sites were affected by Superstorm Sandy’s wrath in New York. Gawker’s sites are still down at this moment.
Feed from Buzzfeed’s tumblr account:
Datagram, the ISP whose Manhattan servers host BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Gawker, and other sites, has lost power, an official there told us via text this evening.
“Basement flooded, fuel pump off line – we got people working on it now. 5 feet of water now,” the official wrote.
Elements of BuzzFeed’s site and many story pages are back online, thanks to a Content Delivery Network, Akamai, which hosts the content at servers distributed around the world.
We aren’t able to update the site right now, however, so you can follow us
