    Exclamation URGENT! Batteries.com and dPetruzzi Down!!
    Good evening everyone,

    The Batteries.com and dPetruzzi servers are being moved tonight and will be down. I was originally informed it would be very minimal, but have since been informed a few minutes ago by the director of IT, that it will be a 4 hour minimum!

    My deepest apologies to all of our team!!

    I will post when everything is back up and running.

    Why don't you try and perform surgury to seperate these conjoined twins while you make the server move. Too much leakage with not even any relevence between the to product lines to wisk away battery shoppers to foreign designer purses at dPetruzzi. The shoppers might just stuff the batteries into the new purse and just walk away.

    Oh crap, I thought your battery died. I was going to suggest a backup from Delco and a pair of jumper cables.



    Oh second thought, if the site does not come up when the server gets the re-boot, use the Delco and jumper cables as a defibrillator.

    I'm not one of your affiliates, but just want to say it shows great... geez, I don't hand out compliments too often, so i can't think of the word...

    well... great whatever...

    that your first thought was to go run and tell those folks at ABW :

    Good job

    We are moving 6 servers tonight, including the commerce server that dPetruzzi will finally rest on.

    Too much leakage with not even any relevence between the to product lines to wisk away battery shoppers to foreign designer purses at dPetruzzi.
    I realize there is little relavancing but some things are out of my control dispite the long converstations I have had with our President. I have done my best to cover the leakage by working with Brian to connect the tracking on Batteries.com and dPetruzzi.com so if a consumer does leave and go to the other site, you will still get your commission. The banner on Batteries will not be up much longer as a new promotion will be launched soon and will replace it. I apologize.

    The shoppers migh just stuff the batteries into the new purse and walk away.

    Thank you Billy. I own it to everyone to let them know exactly what is going on. No point in trying to hide it, or making anyone upset because they were spending time and or money when the site was down ...

    It really sucks that it is happening shortly after I announced our new program ... IT could have given me a little more warning ...

    Again my apologies to everyone

    Kristin,

    As a merchant I can relate to the scrambling when interruptions occur. I compliment you on the timely and specific communications you have passed along for your affiliates - Bravo.

    Kudo's on reinforcing 2 potentially great merchants who should be willing to listen.

    Well the wait will be worth it if the boss ties the 2 sites into the same SAS tagged shopping cart. Then I can again go after the Adwhore Union members pushing both shopper and porn sex toy sites. I was afraid I target that group, the way they run through batteries, and have them exit on page one and buy a dsigner purse. You know the group ... can't pass up a sale or shoes or purses when in the shopping mood.... and there went my battery commissions.

    Heck the cart/mating ritual should be fun to coordinate and advertise. I did www.suspenders.com and www.sloops.com using the same cart so sales get affiliate credit regardless of site purchase. See... now your boss can see sstraight-up the results when buy a Patented/Trademark pair and comfortable Sloops jeans on 2 seperated sites.... and check cart contents. Even the free freight over $75 still kicks in.

    Then my Adwhore Union traffic promo would work. With a new designer purse, the compulsary little black dress, and a local dance bar ... who'd need batteries. To think people pay me fro this brillance... I'll hawk a commission on the purse, and check all local dance bars to spot a dance trance prospect. Hook someone on some merchant client products and be back in bed by 2AM.

    Hey my ABW icon used to read "master baiter" so I knew it's good if someone works out how traffic could be shared with affiliate objections. Also knew if I ping ponged the shopper from suspenders to comfy jeans and back. Ave sales amounts go up.

    Ecomcity,

    The programs are cross tracked.... so there isn't a leak as you've suggested.


    Kristin,

    I'm getting both sites to work here....
    Thanks,

    Kristin,

    I guess the point is that dPetruzzi.com is not completely up until it propogates across the internet which could take up to 72 hours. Still waiting for my ISP to update its DNS tables.

    Kristin,

    I am finally able to reach dpetruzzi.com. I see the cross linking between the two sites has been minimized.
