Due to reasons beyond our control, TicoTimes.net was offline for at least seven hours (10 a.m.-5:15 p.m.) Thursday. We apologize to all our readers for the inconvenience.

A crew of workers from the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) performed maintenance work on telephone lines throughout the day, causing a malfunction of the main Internet line that supplies our website server. ICE workers could not repair the line until early in the evening.
