Good thing school’s out for summer. Wikipedia, the Internet’s favorite knowledge base, has been down for the last 45 minutes.
The Wikimedia foundation tweeted that its engineers are currently working on solving the problem. Betabeat can access individual articles, but gets the above error message when trying to navigate to the main page. Hopefully it should be back up soon.
In the meantime, if you’re jonesing for your Wiki fix, here’s a pro tip: just read the Google cache version of the article. Or just continue to freak out.
