Per the previous post, the site is up but it's swamped with traffic.
This usually happens after a period of downtime so be patient.

It's up, it's just overloaded. Give it a few hours as all the things like SB and XBMC that have been queuing up queries during the downtime get through, get their info and stop hitting the site and things'll smooth out.

The definition of "up" is when the website is online and accessable. If not, even if the machine's little bolp continues to give out a nice green strong light, it's considered down.

Responding to requests is up. As nginx is actually returning a HTTP code it's up.

Also quit your whining, it's a free service, you don't like the uptime, go make your own.

Thanks to the admins for what I assume was a chunk of their weekend spent in front of a screen waiting for something to happen.

Since nginx presents a "Gateway timeout" message, I assume it does not cache responses to anonymous requests. Would that be an idea to implement? I would think the majority of requests swamping the site right now could be served from cache without problems.

Well, I want a refund! :D

Seriously, though, TVDB is awesome and data center updates are all part of the Net.
