    Apparently there was a fire that GigeNet Hosting, forcing several big sites to go offline for a short period of time. Under these sites, Sharecash, FileIce & Pastebin.

    Sharecash statement:


    At approximately 4:30 PM EST today, 10/9, one of our service providers had a small fire in their datacenter. The fire department forced them to shut the power off to their building while they investigated, which resulted in a downtime that lasted over two hours and affected many large websites around the internet. We setup a temporary replacement for the service they provided and were able to bring ShareCash back up before our provider actually restarted all their servers; however, as this required a DNS change, the new IP addresses took a long time to propagate to all users, so the earnings for this period of downtime were still much lower. Our service provider has still not restored our service, so many users can still not access ShareCash. We will update this announcement when ShareCash is fully restored to normal.


    At this point Pastebin is online again, Sharecash and FileIce remain unreachable for most parts of the world.

    I thought I post this here in case some people are worrying what is going on at the moment. I apologize should this have been already posted, but I couldn't find any info on BHW.

    Events like this are rare, but do happen from time to time. I hope nobody's earnings were majorly effected!
