Newegg.com is (was) down

without comments

Update: The site is back up.
Everybody’s favorite computer store Newegg.com seems to be having trouble with its web servers this morning, so if you have kept hitting that reload button for the past hour or so, don’t worry it’s not your net connection.

The more time that passes the less often we see this kind of things happening to large sites, especially e-commerce that depend on its 24/7 availability. That said, when we still see Amazon’s server farms taken to a crawl when an unbelievable deal is available, we have to wonder if perhaps Newegg was carrying a bit of stock on the GeForce 8800 GT which is what caused the glitch… yea, probably not.
