Stack Overflow is having issues. This is making it harder to do my job.

Weird how my job is less about actually knowing things these days, but more about knowing how to learn them quickly.

@cuchaz The old joke that goes around in IT circles is that when Stack Overflow goes down, how do their engineers figure out how to fix the problem?

@zalasur I mean, sure... we could eventually figure it ourselves. We could download sources and trace calls until we find the info we want. But who has time for that? And who would want to pay us to spend time on that? SO is basically a shortcut. A knowledge base for the engineers. No strictly essential, but man is it ever a time-saver.
