We know they will be up shortly afterwards.  Simply do something else in the meantime.

Winston Heverly We are in the world where we do expect everything 24x7. However, I have seen big banks also have limited access during the 'schduled' maintenance.

The keyword is 'Scheduled'! As long as we know it is there, we can plan our activities around that. (And yes, I know we all love points with few exceptions.)

They did warn us it would be down for 3 hours last night... and even gave us links to some other things to do, including some AR University videos.  Sorry you were frustrated, Winston Heverly .

It takes a lot more than that to frustrate me.

Stuff happens. 

I imagine those who call a real estate agent only to be sent to VM are also frustrated. Stuff happens.

I'm on this site forever and I NEVER see these notices. If the site is going to be interrupted the notice should be when you log in, not some blog you have to search and find. Just one man's opionion. But hey we live in a world now that expects we know everything 24/7 and have time to read every blog one rights I guess.

Yes. It is a good time for alternative activities.

Yes, it is frustrating when I am inspired to write a blog post and then it does not save it or it fails to post on the later date as directed.  Most of the time I don't have many issues, except the scheduled posting and my photo has disappeared again.
