Re: ADD Forums Outage

I totally flipped out over this deal. I did not even try going any place else. I tried Saturday and Sunday. On Monday when my ISP opened I called, I do not even know how many times trying to get my computer "fixed." I was on and off the phone with those people from 17:15 untill 19:10!!! The last poor guy was off at 19:00, but he stayed and helped me with my computer. After I hung up for the last time, I finally tried going to a different site, and everything else worked. It was a very frustating almost 2 hours, all for nothing!

Re: ADD Forums Outage

"Firefighters told data center workers to turn off all the power, according Planet spokeswoman Yvonne Donaldson. That meant the servers, even though they weren't damaged, were offline."

In other words it was not the random failure of transformer but a government order that shut it all down.

Sounds like another conspiracy theory in the works. Pretty soon someone will start the rumor that Antarctic Terrorists blew up the transformer...to protest global warming.

Curls up in the corner...and snoozes..while the conspiracy flutters through once more.

If you had a Mac, you would know there was a problem with the site and not your computer.
