The Network Is Down
Are you sure? Check status.noisebridge.net first.
status.noisebridge.net runs smokeping which graphs network latency (how long does it take for a packet to make a round trip) over time. Use the power of your human brain for anomaly detection -- see some statistically-significant bumps in the graphs and the network doesn't seem to work right? Might be an indication that something's actually broken and it's "not just you".
