Wow, looks like most of their sites are down right now due to an error with the database connection:

http://www.nettuts.com http://www.psdtuts.com http://www.audiotuts.com http://www.aetuts.com

and even: http://www.envato.com

Blogs are down as well:

http://blog.themeforest.net

Can anyone let us know what’s happening over there? Hope everything’s okay!

Not sure what the problem is – but I know they’re taking care of it.

Sorry for the troubles. ...But it happens.

Oh, I know it does.

The last time I saw that same message on one of my own sites several years ago, my database was GONE , so I was just worried ;)

Haha yeah, I know. I have an Envato addiction. When they go down, about 40% of my daily sites are down ;)

Yeah…I’ve seen that same database error with several wordpress blogs before. I’m not really sure what the cause is, but I know it will usually go away by itself after several hours.
