Lovefilm Germany's backend has been down for 14 days, leaving subscribers unable to access their accounts to rent films or use the video streaming service.

"Oh dear, we have issues and are not going to be able to reach the target...Looks like you will have to keep me employed for another two weeks. Such a shame.."
And that's only affecting the german site is it?

Can't shut TPB down even with atomic bombs and VX nerve gas yet legal alternative goes tits up of it's own accord.
