    I'm not able to access any auction pages on ebay. All I'm getting is a "Page cannot be displayed" message. Is anyone else getting this or is it time to throw my computer in the trash. :mad:

    SWEET!!!!!!!!!! IT WORKED!!!!!!

    Some moron put up a Sadowsky with no reserve and a minimum bid of $500. I wanted to make sure no one else could get it before me. The auction ends in a few minutes, and then you can have your eBay back. :)

    so what do you guys think? hackers, virus, spilled coffee, government conspiracy? I imagine we will hear something about it on the news tomorrow. It's not everyday that one of the world's largest and busiest websites goes down. Let alone one that is responsible for millions of dollars in business transactions every day.
     
  11. Well... could you hurry up already? :spit:

    From the "Tech Spot" forum :

    EBay has three outages in three days
    by Julio @ 2:49 PM[Comments] http://www.3dspotlight.com/

    Quote:
    (thanks Neowin) Online auction giant eBay has experienced three outages of varying severity since Sunday, a spokesman for the San Jose-based company said.
    Yesterday, almost all of the users of the bidding site were shut out of auctions and most other pages for about an hour, eBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove said. This followed a 12-hour outage on Sunday that shut down the site's apparel, watches, jewelry and gems pages.

    Sellers who were affected by the outages have the option of either extending their auctions or receiving a credit from eBay, the spokesman said. The company won't know how many users opted for a credit until the end of the month, but Pursglove said it won't have an effect on the company's bottom line.

    Pursglove said that the company is still investigating the details of the two smaller outages but that the larger outage was caused by a corruption of data files. The corrupted files began to replicate and quickly spread across the system, eventually shutting down the apparel, watches, jewelry and gems pages. No other details were available, he said.
