I wouldn't say S0br is a dumb ass, I think it is a valid question. The last 2 very large blocks before this one, Kano mentioned them being flooded with bad packets that might have caused some of the issue. It certainly is worth looking at, as when he fixed those, the blocks were found quickly.
No flood mentioned anywhere by me, just some bad shares by someone who seemed to be trying to crash the pool.
So yeah if the pool died then that would mean an outage, otherwise, no issue.
The server has 24 "cores", we're using an average of about one "core" so far ...
However, another statistical term that some people making up silly comments about luck seem to not understand: "sample"
With a tiny sample of 30 blocks (including one orphan), that "sample" vs "population" is so small that one would actually be surprised if it was close to the expected result so far.
84.88% since the pool started - luck still looking good
