I swear when I logged in that the Origin menus looked slightly spruced up.
I'm now (as of two seconds ago) back in my town at last. Haven't noticed anything too new yet. Anyone else have anything similar happen to them? Is your town back up?
I never lost my town, but Origin is back. Haven't noticed anything new.

Oh.. And the bowlarama is being built.
Phew- finally logged back in. Didn't get an update though, Sonny. Just happy my Springfield is fully in tact and I finally have the Bowlarama started. All is well with the world
Nice thing! Everyone breathe. And tap.
Happy Tapping all....
But at least origin is up and running again. Sucks for people who are still unable to get in though. It's getting tougher and tougher to connect simply on a 3G connection. I only play on wifi at home these days because its so much harder on 3G
Oh that's annoying. I set Hibbert off on his first 12hr quest not long before the crash and he had 8 minutes left when I got back in.
Just before the crash it said I had been logged out and to play anonymously. I react to these strange notifications the same every time just in case: I touch nothing, delete the app, re-download and re-install it. I really don't want my town reset by tapping something when I shouldn't. Anyway, I reckon that's why it downloaded everything again (though why all the information's not included in the installer I have no idea).
The main this is, as you say, we're back up and running again. Time to go on a neighbourhood watch. See you in Springfield!
I also didn't get any updates and everything looks to be the same.
That's why you had a huge update. You had to download all the xmas content again.
