    Yes, we did. I'm waiting to get some more details, and will also be making sure that we're set up for monitoring and quicker resolution when/if we have problems in the future.

    I usually come here to check when I think a merchant or network is down. I didn't know where to go this morning.

    I have heard a rumor that CJ has started an "Is ABW Down" thread.

    I guess I should have checked my email before I said I was waiting for more details.

    Monitoring is in place, but it didn't catch it since the server was responding. Mat is working to beef up the monitoring.

    Anyway, it's back up! Yay!

    Due to the outage, eBates was able to take control over a large portion of California. On the bright side, you will now receive 30% cashback on all airline tickets to LA.

    A good steak doesn't need A1. (If you ever see me ask for A1, now you'll know what I'm saying.)

    I thought I was hooking the Christmas tree up to a timer, but it turns out I got the power cords mixed up.

    Keep 'em comin'! Gotta love all these conspiracy theories.

    It was an experimental new method of dealing with all the Indian spammers we get overnight. Just shut the place down until morning.

    DARN RIGHT! A touch of fresh ground pepper, maybe, but that's about it. It would be truly shameful to cover the flavor of a perfectly grilled New York Strip with anything.
