On 2021-08-10 23:30 CST, I observed that I cannot push to my GitHub repo even with --force. After checking the GitHub status site, it seems that the GitHub API is down1.

It is not the first time that GitHub is down. There has been several failure reports last year (2020), due to MySQL and other issues.

At this moment, I have realized how much I and other developers around world are relying on this free service.
