    The Associated Press server is out world wide?

    Everything appears kosher on APExchange.

    It all looks clean and green to me.

    It was down, but it has returned! (insert theme from "Rocky" here).

    Don't know the exact time of the outage but from what I understand, the server was down world-wide. Ouch.

    The justice department had to take it down for a little while to put some files back.

    I jokingly told co-workers that terrorists are behind it.

    This is the second time it's happened in a couple years. It was out for four or five hours one day in 2010 or 2011.

    I understand computer networks are complex things, but companies paying seven and eight figures for this service deserve backup feeds, and backups of the backup feeds.

    It was definitely out at one point. My co-worker couldn't get onto Exchange at about 6 p.m. PDT (fortunately, I got all the photos I needed by that point), but it was back up a little while later.

    Oh, and don't forget the problems the site had on Election night! Man, that was a nightmare.
