Sorry about the outage. A routine deploy went totally nutso due to an out of date config file being left in the bin directory.

The interesting thing, if you call blind panic interesting, is that the error was manifesting as a null ref in a web control. The web control's code was solid. It was literally impossible for it to manifest this error. What was actually happening is that upstream there was a null ref that was being reported as occurring too far downstream in the stack.

Nothing like trying to put out the fire when you're being told the fire is in the wrong place. Especially odd when the "fire" was essentially in something underwater and covered in asbestos.
cheers
