    Just feeling a bit snarky with all this waiting for the servers 'to come back online' after supposedly crashing. I don't know if Apple geniuses should actually be passing that explanation on, as I read one just did to another forum member.

    Why would they run on Windows servers when they make their own?

    My post was being snarky, as I said.

    My serious point being though, are Apple geniuses telling people that Apple's XServes have crashed a good thing?

    Any server that is over loaded will crash. Simple as that. It does matter if its OS X based or Windows based.

    They are running on virus-less servers:











    V-tech laptops.

    Really? I didn't know that. A bottleneck and/or slowdown I would expect, but the whole system crashing and having to reboot? I learn something every day.

    Well, since I know nothing of servers, you might be right. (I just grabbed that out of the air)

    But since millions of people are going on, I might be right.

    Well, it's working now and I've just got my 2.0 update downloaded, so the ol' XServes came through in the end.

    I cannot for a second forgive Apple.. I mean, I have put heart and blood into their devices. At the very least, they would show that they understand the requirements from a Web Based service. Make the f..king thing work! It is CLEAR that they don't understand the fundamentals, hence the comment that they are running on a W32 platform.. Which I hope, and pray that they are not.

    If anything my Windows server has never crashed and I've seen the OS X server crash a few times. :rolleyes:

    Had too much caffeine today, have we? ;)

    Anytime a company is fielding a significant upgrade or change such as this, there are going to be unforeseen issues that must be solved.

    So they are a day late, it's working fine now it seems.

    Anyhow, if you are stressing this much as a customer over the small delay then you may in line for a heart attack someday. :eek:
