Who else is seeing this behavior tonight?

* .mac email down
* .mac server down
* iDisk down

WTF Apple? How much $$$ do you need to run this thing right? :rolleyes:

Not even the "Temporarily unavailable" page...

Perhaps they have closed the server to implement the iSync Mac2Mac feature correctly?

And I was just trying out Backup. I was starting to think that it didn't download correctly.

BTW: Why doesn't Apple call this iBackup?

Sucks when your software won't run because the server isn't working and you don't really need the server anyway. They should make the .mac checking every month or so. This is stupid.

Okay I was wondering why my mail was not working. Now I have a reason to be mad, its not "hey the email was free" now I feel more like "I paid 60 bucks for this email, I want it to work ALL THE TIME"

Man, I just signed up for .mac this morning (I figure 50 bucks will give me a sense of security with email and alittle storage), and it goes down tonight? What the hell is that all about. Makes me wonder how often they might pull this stuff during the rest of the one and only year I'm signed up with them.

this sucks....

Just got 7 mailers about 30 min after my account was succesfully activated again.

Maybe they're getting ready to dump all the freeloaders. We can't bitch yet because it's technically still free. :)

Have you guys ever heard of system maintenance? I don't want to sound mean, but come on, give Apple a break! Sometimes things just aren't accessible. Whatever the reason may be, you just have to deal with it. Besides, on a Saturday night, you should be out partying, not trying to access your iDisk. Get out, get a life, and get of Apple's back.

Have you ever heard of consistent outages?

.mac has been very spotty since it was introduced. Apple is not holding up their end of the bargain for a PAY service.

Who cares if it's a Saturday night? How do you know why we're trying to access our iDisk or check email? What if we're doing actual work for a client, or trying to do homework for school?

How about you get a life and not tell us how to run ours? :rolleyes:

Any decent service provider should send out warning messages in advance if they know the service will be down for routine maintenance.
