As we shared earlier today, Instapaper is experiencing an extended outage. After 31 hours of downtime, we were able to rebuild a database instance to get Instapaper back online! In the interest of coming back up as soon as possible, this instance only has the last six weeks of articles. For now, anything you’ve saved since December 20, 2016 is accessible.
We’re working on getting the rest of your articles restored, but wanted to give you access to your most recently saved articles in the meantime. Again, there hasn’t been any data loss. The full database exports are taking much longer than anticipated.
We’re aiming to get the full archives available by next Friday, February 17 at the latest. We appreciate your patience and understanding in the interim.
If you’ve got any questions or thoughts, just reply to this email or let us know at @InstapaperHelp on Twitter.

I have used Instapaper on and off from the early days when it was released but this is concerning. I will wait to see if the balance of my saved articles is restored.
This will probably encourage me to use DEVONthink Pro as my “read it later” application for both MacOS and iOS.
