Ok this will be my last post about the Great AWS Outage which, from the posts in the support forums, seems to be still affecting a substantial number of users, not quite the rosy picture AWS posted in their status board:
Apr 24, 2:06 PM PDT We continue to make steady progress on recovering the remaining affected EBS volumes. We are now working on reaching out directly to the small set of customers with one of the remaining volumes yet to be restored.
We’re getting better support and uptime with our lone linode box. I suspect, we’ll be moving some servers there after this disaster.
