If you try visiting either site, you’ll be met with a really slow interface and a server error. Trying to access files on the cloud will net you a ‘File not found’ message

The outage started at around 2:30 PM EST; hopefully it won’t last much longer, and we’ll update this post when things are back to normal. If you don’t have any serious work to do, I guess your weekend just started a little early.
Update 4:55PM ET: Service appears to be coming back, although still a little slow. Stay tuned, folks.
