    Last night around 9:55 it had a message that said it would be up by 10:00 p.m. It didn't come back up, I went to bed.

    This morning it said up by 9 a.m., and at 9 a.m. they pushed it back to 1 p.m.

    What the hell? A major web-based company like that can't fix an issue in a timely manner? I need to update my queue!

    Maybe they are upgrading the site. Adding new features and such. Or maybe they were hacked.

    That's not good. I just read a story yesterday that their profits are down too. Blockbuster has put some hurt on them.

    Here it is, updated with the news about the site being down.

    And of course, they just pushed it back to 3 p.m. I'm supposed to get three movies today or tomorrow, I wonder if I can forget about that?

    Want me to go yell at them? I live just down the street from their main headquarters.

    I've been wondering this also. Give 'em a ring via the telephone, maybe they'll be able to tell you something.

    EDIT: Actually, according to http://www.hackingnetflix.com/ , it was originally to update the site to support the new, lower pricing, and then there was an 'unexpected outage.'

    Oh, thanks for that. I didn't know that site existed. At least movies are still going out.

    Is this a reference to the downtime of TFW2005 today, by chance? ;)  That sucked, too!

    Looks like they gave up predicting a return time. Now it's just "temporarily unavailable."
