.Mac web services down, second outage in two days

.Mac web services down

Apple today later in the day, only affected a small number of users. According to a message on its website, Apple says that iDisk and client-based services (like email, Mac Slides Publisher, and iCal) are unaffected by outage, but Apple provided no time-frame for resolution of the problems. .Mac members pay an annual fee for a suite of web services--many of which are bundled in to Mac OS X for easy access.

    .mac's been disappointin

    I'm not one to get on the "bash .mac' bandwagon but these outages have been too common. Yesterday both I and my wife suffered from the email problems. WIth her trying to set up meetings and hear from employers, we were NOT happy at all. This is especially bad since our renewal is in about 2 weeks. Should we renew? At this point, I don't know.

    They were affected by the LOVELY HUGE storage upgrade!

    125 MB

    I was very happy to read about the storage upgrade as my iDisk is 99% full - and I was having trouble justifying the cost of extra storage. Though, the total capacity of my iDisk has only been raised 25 MB to 125 MB. I'm guessing that this is a little upgrade "glitch" that Apple is presently dealing with.

    Floating max storage

    Sweet, you can now modify where you want the total 250MB to go in .Mac. I set mine to 50MB mail / 200MB iDisk. And the 10MB max email is so much better than that measly little 3MB.

    There wasn't any "problem" this morning at all. Thanks for the upgrade Apple!
