Our PLEX service is temporarily unavailable due to some unscheduled maintenance. We hope to return this service as soon as possible and will keep you updated if any new information is available.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

That was the only 7 minutes I had, unfortunately I will just have to go without now.

As compensation, you guys owe me 7 beers when I see you at fanfest. Deal?

I am also angry and incoherent amsdjkfrsjltbebuieww

Real Post: I really do hope this becomes the new standard:

10 "Hey something's broken"
20 "Ok, while we work on fixing it, we tell people about it"
30 IF Fixed GOTO 40, ELSE GOTO 50
40 "Cool, we got stuff fixed" GOTO 60
50 "Dang, not fixed yet" GOTO 20
60 *Beer Time*

I counted 3 GOTOs there, you guys hiring coders?Shocked

EDIT: Just in case I'm not clear, I wholeheartedly support the ethic behind telling us something's down as soon as you notice, even if it opens you up to some lighthearted (I mean, I used GOTOs) mocking, when you turn out to be quicker at fixing stuff than you anticipated.

Time and time again the winning PR strategy has proven to be Overcommunicate, Underpromise, and Overdeliver. Sometimes you can't get all three, but if you strive for all 3, you can usually grab 2 and walk away with a victory (and Overcommunicate is really a gimme).

You made a post about a 7 minute downtime?



Nice work =)

Thanks for the prompt fix. It's unfortunate that the service was unavailable, but it's reassuring to know you guys are keeping an eye on things.

So, how many PLEX magically disappeared from the market in those 7 minutes?

I jest!
