Cyber-Monday Nails Victoria’s Secret!

It’s Cyber-Monday and Victoria’s Secret can’t keep up!  

(Insert all the funny puns) 

I’ve been trying to buy a few things … uh … for my mother and have not been able to check out.  The real questions are … 

  1. How much time is wasted by employees shopping online at work?
  2. How much money is being lost as their site is down? 

Ouch!  Well, at least their “site is down” image is better than Twitter’s whale.  

Victoria Secret is Down!

Twitter Technical Problems No Joke

I’m not a huge Twitter fan but have been playing around with their SMS/Twitter/Facebook integration which is pretty cool. I guess all of the blogs about how terrible their infrastructure is seem to be at least pointed in the right direction. They went down this afternoon and I believe are still down.

Then it got really serious.

Oh well, who needs good software? Bah!
