Unscheduled Site Outage 7 August 2018

I'm as frustrated as many of you to report that the site has been suffering intermittant outages for the last several hours. It's not you, it's us, and the call has been put in to the Burning Man tech team to investigate. Someone's looking into it now, hopefully they'll get it resolved soon.

Preliminary reports indicate that it's just the extremely heavy load of users. Aside from people logging in, we're getting tons of traffic from lurkers hunting down tickets, searching for camps, or just looking for answers to burn prep related questions (type your search keywords plus eplaya into any search engine and you can usually find a thread with info on what you're looking for).
