Is Longview down or is it just me?

I just ran some updates on my system (Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS, via sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade), and since Longview was held back, I ran sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. linode-longview is a currently running process.

After doing this however, my previous Longview panel now says that no live data is available, and that it's in readonly mode. I verified that my API key as listed online in Longview and in /etc/linode/longview.key matches. I rebooted just to see if that would fix it, but it didn't. Is anyone having problems, and/or did I do something wrong?

If you're having an issue with Longview, you should open a ticket. Staff can't really help via the forums.

I understand, but I was planning for the responses to help me understand if the issue is with just me (I should open a ticket) or with the whole system in general (I should wait for the system to come back online).

Edit: Ok, I opened a ticket, and I guess it's Linode, not me. They're doing some maintenance.
