Yahoo Down for the Count for Three Hours

from the ouch dept

A bit of a surprise, as Yahoo has always been very good about these things. It seems that due to “sabotage” (or so Yahoo claims) most of Yahoo was down today for almost 3 hours. And, I thought it was just me. For some reason today my printer and my laptop broke, so I assumed that not being able to access Yahoo was just the continuation of a technology cursed day for me.

You're telling me!

Today was the worst for me too…in the morning Yahoo was down (and I forward my 3 other email addresses to Yahoo mail nowadays…hmmm..will have to rethink that now I guess)…then for no apparent reason whatsoever MS SQL Server and the JDBC ODBC driver started acting up with mysterious “Function sequence errors”…looked on the web, and found out its still an unsolved mystery why this happens and how to fix it! Anyway, my day ended when my NT box froze up on me and (as usual) I rebooted and got a coke in the meanwhile (as usual). However, it wouldnt let me log back in now, saying my passwords bad!!! So there I gave up and headed home.
