It was a bit unstable last night. Even after the usual maintenance, it kept going down or I kept seeing people bring thrown in and out of group chats.

Today the number of BGP routes on the internet exceeded 512k which caused network outages all over the place, I'm actually surprised Steam traffic was as steady as it was today


Interesting. I haven't heard anything about this so it's news to me. I guess it's a bigger deal if your area is getting hit by the outages.


Here's an article that talks about it. It's not that in depth but it's good enough
