Is the Apps server down?

Hi folks!  I think the Apps server might be down - can you check?  When I try to run either a Fan Chart or even just the apps API demo, I keep getting this message:


Bad Request

Greg,

I just tried fan chart. Worked for me. So did API demo and https://apps.wikitree.com/apps/sands1865/biocheck/

Using chrome on an iPad and logged in to WikiTree.

Thanks Kay for your quick reply!

I discovered this morning that the issue was of my own making ... I'm testing a new way to retrieve Fan Chart data to get data about living WikiTree members when logged in (according to privacy settings) ... and my testing code was generating corrupted cookies on my local laptop, which generated this error.  It'd be so much easier if the error message was more explicit, like "You've baked some Bad Cookies, Dumbie !" .... oh well.

Glad that the actual Fan Chart is still working - as is the rest of the apps.  Phew !

 - Greg
