Facebook suffered a huge outage today that prevented millions of people from posting status updates on the giant advertising network for up to two hours. The Register understands that the company had no choice but to get engineers to do the walk of shame to the server room and turn it off and on again. Facebook said: Earlier …
Ah, the Walk of Shame
Luckily I haven't had to do that one in a while
<knocks on wood>
(Don't use it. && Don't need it. ) == Don't care.
Re: What's Facebook?
Obviously care enough to come over here and enter a forum post stating how much you don't care.
In the voice of Deep Thought:
Whom will that inconvenience?
There is no walk of shame nowadays
It's just the click of shame to turn it on and off again, because the engineers were too lazy to walk.
Millions shut out for two hours!
Much ado about nothing!
Where's the yawn icon?
Regardez vous mai visage.
Sneer away oh superior beings.
If Facebook isn't important for you ,fine you clearly have too much time on your hands, if you need to let everyone know that.. But some of us rely on facebook. My care is managed via facebook Personal messaging. It means my principal carer can be contacted by meor about me more easily than most other methods. I don't use voice comms. for reasons of disability. When "menwantingsexwithhamsters.com" is down, don't worry , I won't sneer in return.
**visions of millions of users stuck in a mind loop as they want to post about facebook being out, but Facebooks out and they can't post about it, making them want to post about it on facebook....**
> "Don't Facebook 'Facebook' on Facebook, otherwise it will turn into just another book." ®
obvious really, system crashed due to an infinite loop when somebody facebooked about somebody else facebooking about their facebooking.
all it took after that was one click of a like button ...
A brief period of time
For Facebook, it means two hours.
For you and me, it means at most 10 minutes, maybe 15 on the outside.
For your manager, it means 5 minutes ago.
Eben Moglen your Facebook
If I didn't like it so much, I'd drop the damnable thing.
Someone get me a Freedombox!
