Ask HN: Why is HN so often down?

It’s daily now, that I’m seeing “We’re having some trouble serving your request. Sorry!”, maybe even 10-20 times during different times.

From Europe, especially during the lunch break hours, HN is down again and again. For instance as of the past 30 minutes, I see the above message more often than the expected pages. It’s been like that also yesterday, the day before that.

I understand that this happens often based on searching, but I don’t remember having it that often in the past.

Honest question: what happens, why do we get that message, especially during these times? Is there something that is going on the the early AM hours in the US? Maintenance work maybe?
