Planeplotter outage: Is sharing direct or via PP server

I currently run Planeplotter with RPi data source which also uploads to FA. The upload is unaffected by the PP server outage, but I was wondering about PC based feeds such the configuration on my laptop.
If the outage knocked off all the PP uploaders showing on the ADSB map, how much of an effect does that have one FA’s data stream? My laptop isn’t available at the moment to test the connection myself.
Hope PP’s back soon.

When you share with FlightAware, it’s directly from your computer to FlightAware, so the PP servers being down (fortunately) doesn’t disrupt the data flow. There may be some slight delays if the clients are slowed down while they try to reach PP, but in general, it’s not a broad problem.
