back to article World panics, children cry, workers sigh ... Facebook.com TITSUP

Bosses cheered worldwide as Facebook.com fell over once again, forcing people to put down their phones, close their private-browsing tabs, and do some work. Yes, even if it is Monday. It appears facebook.com is completely dead now, apart from a static error page, although it showed some signs of life for a few people earlier. …

        Unfortunately against the onslaught of fake productivity via Quantitative Easing, it won't even make a blip on Krugman's monitor.

        Or at least there would be if Twitter was down at the same time.

        Not Star Wars, but the Force. I think the Force laughed...

        And Anakata is one of the dudes for TPB, but I think you knew that?

      Apparently the cache server needs a repaint, or something...

        Worst part is, you can guarantee that some daft people will call 999 because of this..

    Me thoughts that if all programming was done like i did back in the day making assembler thingies, IT worked always if the hardware was OK.

    Would there be ANY titsup if there was a max bug count of ZERO per thousand lines of code.....

    Oh wait, he can't, it's baked into the system. Too bad.

    Now every one migrates to google plus?

    or may be they'll just wait a little longer.

    I for one, bow to our new fluid graph defeating overlords.
