Halloween's Over Yahoo, So Turn The Lights Back On

Yahoo.com is down again for the second time in as many weeks. Which is news because Yahoo never goes down. Except recently. And they’re probably so busy dealing with that outage that no one noticed that Halloween is over, and so they should probably stop promoting it on Yahoo Shopping.

The Yahoo Shopping slip up is actually more interesting than the outage because it’s not a technology problem, it’s just indifference. They’ll issue some statement around the outage like they did last time, and it’s clearly an engineering issue. But there are people who actually run the Yahoo Shopping site and are responsible for promoting this and that, and nearly 24 hours after the holiday is over they’ve still got it up as their main promotion. Not a good sign.

Will the last person out please turn the lights back on?
