Downtime is not fun

Then again, it can provide small quantities of mirth, just from watching people overreacting, or pretending to overreact:

OMGOD I’M LOSING 10000000000$ A MINUTE FOR EACH MINUTE MY SITE IS DOWN. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.

More reasonable estimate: 27 cents.

I might point out that if you’re doing mission-critical stuff, you probably should expect to pay more than nine bucks a month for service — but nobody ever got rich listening to me, right?
