Ebay problems?
« on: January 02, 2009, 06:32:56 PM »
Is anybody else having trouble getting ebay to load?  I've tried three different browsers, and all three give the same result.

I had that problem a couple of weeks ago.  It lasted for a few hours and affected all browsers.  (I was having no issues with other sites)  I'll bet it was either some sort of targeted hacker thing (overloading their servers) or was the result of some sort of website upgrade/modification. Who knows?

It's working fine for me now.  I had no difficulty with other sites, just eBay, and just as Mark experienced, it lasted a couple hours and then all was fine again.  Odd.

It's a good thing I wasn't watching an auction that ended during the time it wasn't working for me.  I'd have been in a bit of a panic.
