    edit: PS should be back up - refresh the error page if you see one

    original title: POKEMON SHOWDOWN IS DOWN - will be up in a few hours

    So yeah, PS is down due to extra-high server load. In other words, we've gotten more popular than the server can handle. Other than the server being down, this is a good thing! :)

    Anyway, it'll be back up within a few hours; I've gotten a CDN involved and PS will be back up once its DNS propagates. Thanks for your patience!

    Products will be stored all across the world so players can get their goods from their nearest location rather than one megastore and as soon as your browser gets the new address you'll be ready to go.

    Our playerbase is too awesome for us to hold :(
    It is important to note that the net awesomeness divided by the number of users ends up being a rather low awsomeness level per user :(

    Just a minor setback, really. Being popular has its prices.

    If PS keeps gaining popularity at this rate my computer won't be able to handle it, 70% of my ladder losses are already caused by my computer freezing... yay :|
