I’ve come to use Github.com on a daily basis in a lot of what I’ve been working on.

Storage server temporarily offline. Please try again in a few minutes or contact GitHub.

Back online, yay!

According to the Github twitter feed, the problem involved a heartbeat monitor which was incorrectly marking back-end machines as down.
