Sometimes it’s interesting being on the inside. Watching the sausage being made.

When the internet has an outage, there’s a good chance that AWS (hence, Amazon) has a hand in it.

I was hearing that Reddit had an outage. And later Netflix.

So, what’s a curious monkey to do? VPN in and check the trouble ticket. :-)

I can’t do a damn thing to fix it. If I could I would… I would dig the proverbial (or literal) ditch to help fix the problem. I don’t have permissions though. (And likely not the expertise either)

But it’s interesting in any case.
