2:30 PM EST – AGORACOM Main Site Down – Amazon Web Services Technical Glitch

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:53 PM on Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Good afternoon to you all.  As many of you have noticed, the main AGORACOM site is down.  Our blog runs off a different set of servers for precisely this reason.

What happened? The technical explanation is that our Server cluster at Amazon had a few problems starting at approximately 3AM EST and we had to take the system offline to rectify the issue. The layman’s explanation … there’s a glitch at Amazon.

We appreciate everyone’s emails and notes to us, want to assure you that we’re on the case and will have AGORACOM running smoothly ASAP.

In the meantime, we’re glad this happened on a Saturday when all of us should be enjoying our families, friends and NFL Football Playoffs … or all 3 together if you are really lucky !!

For those of you that are really hungry for small-cap content, we invite you to take a look at the following today:

1.  The AGORACOM Blog – You’re already here, so scroll down for small-cap news we’ve discussed over the past few days

2.  AGORACOM Members Blog – As many of you know, we started a blog dedicated to publishing great posts my AGORACOM Members.  From Presidents to Mail Room Members, anybody can make it if you have something great to say.  Have a look!

3.  AGORACOM Twitter – Twitter is where we post short but important bursts of information that affect small-caps from both a micro and macro point of view.  Have a look.  For those of you that don’t like Twitter …..

4.  TSX Venture Tweets – We’re tracking the tweets of TSX Venture Companies and put them together in a daily newspaper format for you to read in a more familiar setting.  Check it out and let us know what you think!
