We would like to apologize if you were affected by the recent outage. As the Linkpad team has their own Linkpads, we quickly noticed the problem. After investigating the problem, we discovered that Google's DNS servers were temporarily down.
While we can't guarantee that Google will never have this problem again, we can give you a workaround when such outages arise. If Linkpad ever seems unreachable, you can try this alternate URL:
This link relies on different DNS servers, so should remain unaffected by most DNS outages.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
