I was unable to reach php.net, the official home page of PHP. I was surprised by this, as PHP is a very large project used by millions of websites, including this one. I then jumped over to the popular website reachability tester DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com to see if php.net was down for everyone or just me. To my horror DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com was also down.
I certainly feel more comfortable about moving all things to the cloud.
