Cyber Monday Blues

Submitted by ub on Mon, 12/02/2013 - 17:37

This is what I had to deal with on Cyber Monday. I sang the blues for a while in the morning.

Early today on Cyber Monday I watched my Web site go gone down once again for a second time is as many weeks for a short bit of time.

I contacted my host, Amazon and they spent 20 minutes apologizing...

"I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your webpage. That's definitely not what we want our customers to experience.

All of this on CYBER MONDAY the day after BEZOS appears on 60 Minutes to dazzle Amazon customers and the TV viewing audience:

As you can now see, this web page is working once again. The problem is solved for now!
