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.
