Call this a public service announcement from the always accessible Major Nelson. By now you’d have noticed that Xbox Live is down for some regular maintenance work. The Major’s talked to the guys at Xbox Live Operations, and while they can’t give an exact time when Live will go Live again, they say that things are “progressing nicely.”

Hours of fun, promises Major Nelson
