[RESOLVED] Widespread outage across the Internet

Hi all,

Due to a major outage with Amazon Web Services, Facer along with a number of other major websites on the Internet is experiencing some downtime right now. For more information, please refer to http://www.theverge.com/2017/2/28/14765042/amazon-s3-outage-causing-trouble

We are monitoring the situation closely and hoping to bring the service back up, shortly. Thanks so much for your patience!

That would explain problems with my drafts…

Is it possible to know if this outage will damage in any way unpublished watchfaces?

The outage won’t damage anything that was previously saved, but saving progress on watchfaces, and creating new faces will likely not be possible until this is resolved. The issue started at 9:40AM Pacific Time this morning.

Amazon is working hard to resolve the issue right now, but we don’t have an ETA for resolution from them yet. We’ll update this thread as soon as we know more. Fingers crossed, this will be resolved ver soon.

Oh boy, I just got done making a watch face. :worried:

All, if you have a lot of progress on your watch face, I recommend keeping your Creator window open and try to save again when we give you the go.

Try to make a habit of saving all scripts you use on your computer.

It saved me a lot of trouble, I am not capable of remembering something like:


Haha, I only use simple stuff like #DWFSS#, THAT’S ALOT! :open_mouth:

Because of that Amazon thing it is now not available, but later open inspector mode on this:

I guess I’m a masochist, because all of my latest watchfaces were that complex (and I was about to post 7 new ones).
Painful, but worth it!

I’d like to say that Facer is back up! SOOOO… have fun with it?

Amazon is still reporting some issues internally, so I’d proceed with caution. We’re considering the incident still ongoing from our perspective.

Hi all!

Amazon is now communicating that the outage is resolved. Our tests seem to indicate that Facer is now fully functional as well. Thanks so much for your patience and please do feel free to report any issues that seem related to morning’s outage in this thread. We’ll continue monitoring for the rest of the day.

Happy facing!

Well except my facer app keeps crashing every time I try to open it.

Thanks for the inspector view, I couldn’t get my mind on how to read time without it.
Great work, love the movement…

I think you can unpin this post already.
