    Actually all the Drugstore.com sites - Beauty.com, Vision Direct, Lensmart etc.

    Walmart.com had issues.

    Amazon.com had some issues.

    I had a few merchants down on CJ. I'm not sure it was the traffic or something else.
    Also, if I can give you an advice before the big rush:
    CHECK YOUR LINKS
    I was wondering what my sales were not in accordance with my traffic for a few products. My links were dead, some because the merchants didn't update them but many because of my own mistakes.

    Last year JC Penney was down on and off for a couple of days and they have a ton of servers.

    I honestly don't understand why anyone would cheap out on resource allocation. Well actually I do know why because I worked for a pinhead whose bonus was keyed to how much of his budget he used so the SOB starved us for disk and memory and our systems were constantly freezing. He didn't care. He came in $50K under budget that year.

    Being that they are the leaders of the industry, i thought that they have learned from their past 'bu bu'.

    I was trying to create links with Cutter and Buck today and parts of their website weren't up. It was frustrating because I had just made links to this area yesterday.
