[Update: GitHub is back now] It’s not just you — GitHub is down

Update 2: After nearly three hours, GitHub is up and running again as of 8:23PM PST.

Update: As of  7:17PM PST, GitHub’s Status page reports that the platform is recovering.

The place where you’re probably hosting your code is down.

This afternoon (or evening… or morning, depending on where you are) GitHub began giving failure errors for those trying to log on. Down Detector shows is showing a lot of activity, all since around 4:00PM PST.
