I'd like to think Engineering do a pretty good job at uptime for core services - when was the last time you saw Wikipedia down for any extended period of time? - regardless of what day of the week it is.
Wikipedia uptime is certianly much better these days than it was around 2005/6 when there were at least two websites dedicated to reporting its status. Back then it wasn't uncommon to experience major slowdowns, periods of non-responsiveness, extended read only periods and edits failing (sometimes silently) due to (iirc) overloaded servers. I can't remember the last time I saw anything like that, but it certainly wasn't 2013.
The folks responsible for this certainly deserve kudos for their efforts. ---- Chris McKenna cmcke...@sucs.org www.sucs.org/~cmckenna The essential things in life are seen not with the eyes, but with the heart Antoine de Saint Exupery _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
