Apple Developer portal partially resurrected

Large community of Sunday night developers overjoyed

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apple's developer portal came back to life over the weekend, eight days after it was allegedly taken down by a Turkish bloke.

The high-fructose computer company delivered its usual non-deluge of information about just what caused it to pull the site down last week. It's being just as verbose with its news of how it was coaxed back into health and when full service will be restored.

An update page , says the company is working "to bring our developer services back online” and thanks developers “for bearing with us while we bring these important systems back online. We will continue to update you with our progress.”

Whatever the cause of the outage, it's sever enough to mean not all Developer services can be restored at once. Apple's Status page reports, at the time of writing, that only seven of fifteen services are live. That some of those listed as offline, such as “Technical Support”, can easily be explained by the fact this story is being written on Sunday night, Cupertino time. Not even fanboi developers want help at that time of week.

That the service's forums are also down perhaps speaks of more serious problems. ®
