Netflix down

John Moe Jul 18, 2011

I’m not just talking about this story, man, I was living it! My kids wanted to know why WHY they couldn’t watch Phineas & Ferb on Netflix and I had NOTHING TO TELL THEM. Because I DIDN’T KNOW. It turns out Netflix suffered a pretty big outage last night through much of the country. The company has apparently fixed it, apologized via a tweet, and everything is running smooth again. In the meantime, my children had to resort to READING BOOKS like we had LOST A WAR or something.
