Hello,

I tried to place an order today (approx 2:15 PM CST Sunday) but when I hit "Checkout", I get an error screen stating that page is unavailable. It appears to be the secure server.

Parallax isn't so rich that is turns away business now, right? http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif



Thanks,
Mike

There is an issue with the shopping cart crashing over the weekend at a specific time. We are looking into what is causing this. You can place your order online Monday after our IT department restarts the cart.

An early daylight savings time issue, perhaps?

No this is at least the 2nd weekend in a row.

Is this like the old technician's story where the cleaning lady yanked the server's power every Wednesday at 7:30 PM so she could plug in her vacuum cleaner to do the office rugs??!!

No it's a program running on a server in a locked closet.
