Today WordPress.com was down for approximately 110 minutes, our worst downtime in four years. The outage affected 10.2 million blogs, including our VIPs, and appears to have deprived those blogs of about 5.5 million pageviews.
What Happened: We are still gathering details, but it appears an unscheduled change to a core router by one of our datacenter providers messed up our network in a way we havenít experienced before, and broke the site. It also broke all the mechanisms for failover between our locations in San Antonio and Chicago. All of your data was safe and secure, we just couldnít serve it.

Yes, I realize time of day might have had something to do with it, but still...it's kind of sad, really, to think about all the time being poured into blogs that nobody reads.
Then their average blog gets approximately 1.01127 pageviews per hour?!
