Massive DNS outage affecting many major sites also affected ClearCheckbook

10/21/2016 in ClearCheckbook News
Today, Friday October 21, 2016, there was a major DNS outage that affected an untold number of sites including Netflix, Twitter, Spotify, Reddit, GitHub, New York Times, Heroku (who we use as a server solution) and more which took ClearCheckbook offline as well.

Unfortunately in situations like this there's nothing we're able to do. The issue was with technology controlling how the internet fundamentally works and nothing we actually have any control over.

It appears things are coming back online now. We're sorry for the inconvenience and wish there was something we were able to do.
