I have gotten pretty upset with our hosting service from time-to-time. But it’s times like these which remind me that shit happens even with the biggest and the best of ’em.

Over the past week or two, I’ve been having really slow response, at various times, from various Yahoo! services. Now, I’ve had zero response (can’t even log on) from Yahoo! IM for over half an hour.

Update: close to an hour now, and still nothing – no: there it goes. I’d test it, but there be no-one online just now I particularly want to chat with. 🙂

Anyway: 50 minutes of down-time is pretty bad for Yahoo! IM. This reflects my hesitance to get into Vonage, or any of those other low-cost VoIP long distance services. I mean, the telephone works more than anything in my life but water and sewer. And I don’t pay much for phone service – why fuck with it?

As of 7:10am local time, Yahoo! IM is down again. I’ll check back from time-to-time. 7:25 – now it’s back up. 7:56 – down for about the last 5 minutes. 8:20 – up now.
