Loading workspace

I try to launch workspace, but it just loads constantly, then times out. Any suggestions? I am using Chrome and up to date if this helps.

Same here it's happening in IE10, Firefox 29, and Chrome 34.

Here's what I did. I'm using a Mac and I have TextWrangler (free) installed. If you're on a PC you can just get Notepad++ (also free). Just pretend that TextWrangler/Notepad++ is your Workspace for now. Watch the video(s) and then go through as normal. I don't think it is a show stopper with the Workspace(s) being down.

Good call, not sure why I figured I NEEDED their workspace.Ill use my notepad plus plus .

good call

Thought about it, I just didn't want to do it at first. but I'll do that now. I have notepad ++ installed. Guess I'll fill in the code afterwards. They make learning interesting here tho love the program. Hope they fix it soon tho.

Hi guys, they're working on it now and you can find status updates here: http://status.teamtreehouse.com

awesome, back at it then. I toyed with the other sites while waiting...just wanted this one to work...glad its up

Hey Team!

Sorry to hear about the trouble you've been having. We're having some issues with our Workspaces server right now. We should have things running smoothly soon. We'll update our status page at http://status.teamtreehouse.com when things are working again.

Thanks for your help! :)

Best,

Elizabeth

NP! I understand such hassles/issues. Sorry, my first reaction was a crappy one. I was , shall I say elbow deep in a lesson and the workspace stopped working, i was bummed! I even tried the other sites for time filler till your servers were back up, but nothing satisfied me like your lessons.

Thanks! And Goodluck chad

Okay so I think they are still working on it based on Elizabeth's post above and the Treehouse Status page link she provided. I'm going to wait until I see that page updated. Just posting this so that I don't give a false impression that things are totally fixed.

Yea, mine is still down. So ill just keep an eye on the status as well.

Thanks for your support Team! :)

We recently rolled out a fix, and people might be having trouble still so we're keeping an eye on things. Please send us an email at help@teamtreehouse.com if you're having any further troubles. Thanks again for your help!

Best,

Elizabeth

Wooo-hooo indeed Chad! Happy learning Team. :)
