Hey, guys. There was a problem with an authentication vendor today that kept me out of Fool.com for much of the day, and I am guessing it got you too. This was a vendor problem and they should have had backups and rollovers in place. I believe there was an SLA agreement in place on which the vendor failed to deliver.

I have my doubts that this is the whole story because when I tried to get into my.fool.com, I got nothing. It did not want me to login or anything. Same when trying just fool.com or www.fool.com.

I then tried https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ my.fool.com and it said the site was down for everyone. I.e., it did not try authenticating me.

Now today I had no trouble getting in, but

https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ my.fool.com and it said

My.fool.com Status
Is my.fool.com down right now?
It's not just you! my.fool.com is down

Fool.com Status
Is fool.com down right now?
It's just you. fool.com is up.

Fool.com Status
Is fool.com down right now?
It's just you. fool.com is up.

But I got right in when I went to my.fool.com
