Website temporarily inaccessible

I've been trying to download several apps since yesterday around 1 PM CST and all have failed with the notification stating: The PortableApps.com website is temporarily inaccessible to maintenance and the app can not be downloaded. Can someone confirm maintenance is still underway and is it typical maintenance windows last this long?

Thanks

No Issues, You're Getting a 503 error

There is no maintenance going on, all servers are up and running, and I just downloaded multiple apps without issue. What specific apps are you experiencing this with?

That error message is from when we used to do backups that would take the site offline for about 15 minutes each night. We no longer do that. It means you're receiving a 503 error which means service unavailable. Are you using a software firewall of some sort that is interfering?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Apps I'm trying to download

Apps I'm trying to download are Notepad ++, Geany, Thunderbird and a few others. I was able to download Skype, Libre office suite, Inkscape, and a some others with no issue then I got the error message for the remaining.

Not using a software firewall either.

All Working Here, SourceForge Mirror

All 3 just downloaded without incident here. I'd wager your local SourceForge mirror is currently borked. Try downloading in your web browser and see what the first SF mirror it gives you is. It will likely switch to the next one.
