I was in the middle of updating the article about ASCII Art at Wikipedia.org when the site suddenly hung when I attempted a preview of my changes.When nothing happened after over a minute did I quickly copied my changes to a local file as backup and check further. Yes, Wikipeda is down. It’s now over 1 hour and no sign of of Wikipedia coming up again in sight. It can’t be routine maintenance or reboot of servers that’s causing this. It must be something more serious. I checked my network, just to make sure that it is not just me who has the problem. Network is fine. I also connected remotely to a completely different network and tried to access Wikipedia.org from there… nothing.I did some other changes before today, which I did not backup locally. I hope that this “crash” of the Site does not result into any data loss and that they are up again soon, that I can complete my modifications.I am an active user at wikipedia and updated or extended already multiple articles at the popular and free online encyclopedia. It’s the first time that I see the Site being down for such a long time which worries me a bit.I hope that everything will be alright again later today.Carsten a.k.a. Roy/SAC
