The patience of a saint – not!

My blog has not been accessible all day due to service maintenance at Spray/Lycos, according to an error message that greeted visitors this morning:

“Due to an operation of maintenance on servers, site is temporary unavailable.

Thanks for your patience!”

My simple response to this is:

1. Don’t assume that I’m patient. To the contrary. Some 8 hours of downtime is not acceptable.
2. Some kind of prior notice would have been polite, so that I could take appropriate measures like for example setting my Google Adwords ad campaign on pause.
3. Are you planning on reimbursing me by extending my current subscription with one day (or ideally more than one day)?
