UPDATE 2:15PM EST Reports are now saying the cause is Amazon’s S3 Cloud storage is failing, and its plaguing mostly the US-East 1 Region. Imgur, Medium, and the Docker Registry are biggest other sites hit, anyone else down or reeling is a result of impacting applications. The Virginia, US facility is where this is occurring, Amazon Web Services are saying its “Not an outage, but a case of increased error rates” for its most popular cloud service.
You can check up on Amazon’s servers as they have now repaired the ability to check itself. fool. https://status.aws.amazon.com
From their Health Dashboard: Update at 2:35 AM EST: We have now repaired the ability to update the service health dashboard. The service updates are below. We continue to experience high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1, which is impacting various AWS services. We are working hard at repairing S3, believe we understand root cause, and are working on implementing what we believe will remediate the issue.
FREAKOUT, USA About 1:30 PM EST daily fantasy players started theirdaily ritual of getting facts about tonights slate of NBA or NHL games so they could get their action in before 7pm lock, but RotoGrinders.com, one of the sites that offer MEGA content for DFSers to chew and spit out on DFS sites like Fanduel.com and DraftKings.com to name a few, was not responding to browsers.
NO MATTER said most of the habitual offenders, who went off to Fanduel.com to use their own information to formulate their plan of attack. Fanduel.com however, would offer no better help.. SITE DOWN!
Just at that moment, the person who spends their hard earned money thinking THEY will be the one to take down the 100,000 dollar first prize just like the other 127k people entering the same contest on the same site with the same list of players getting information from the same site… FOUND CONSPIRACY!
FAN DUEL AND ROTOGRINDERS ARE DOWN AT THE SAME TIME??? THEY…THEY..THEY MUST BE ONE AND THE SAME.
You could only feel for the poor first fool who discovered Clark Kent was Lois Lane. At least he had someone to tell, by now the other half of the internet had gone down!
DRAFTKINGS.com was open for business, so DFS players swarmed over to…. AHH CRAP! They went down Too… ALAS lets go to Twitter.com to find out if..
AVG TWITTER HANDLE: ROTOGRINDERS AND DRAFTKINGS AND FAN DUEL ARE ALL DOWN AT THE SAME TIME?????
Of course Bucstop.com added its usual charm with some fitting comments found below:
..Blame Premier Trump
…Cheap ass FanDuel and Draft Kings, they couldnt afford GODADDY.com? Suckered in to Amazon all for the promise of a year of 2 day shipping!
…Sure we DFS Junkies are biting our nails, while FanDuel employees are all getting eCards for Free downloads of “Man in the High Castle” #FtheAmazon!!
No word on what happened, but if any DFS players are reading this, there are TONS of sites down, just so happens DFS went to the same ones.
If it helps, I really would blame Premier Trump! Now no one can Tweet about his address to Congress!
