More cloud outages. Cloudages?

John Moe Sep 9, 2011

Yesterday we told you about Google Docs going down, which meant anything you had stored up on that cloud was not accessible. Not to be outdone, last night, Microsoft reported a 2 hour outage which took down all MSN websites, including Hotmail. Hotmail’s failure was a big blow to people who fell asleep in 1997 and just woke up to log on. One site also effected: Office 365, which might consider changing its name to Office 364 & 22 hours. Thanks everyone, don’t forget to tip your waitresses. Try the veal.
