Which kind of sucks, because I just clicked “book ticket now” on a travel site.

Now I guess I have to … gasp … use the phone and TALK to a real person.

Seems to be coming back…

It has been being retarded for me since yesterday around 5pm… odd


#6

Must be a telus problem…

Down again, seems to stop at the telus gateway. A little birdy tells me that Telus is replacing some equipment that’s gone flaky.

Maybe they should put more money into their equipment than on supporting pet stores.
