Unhappy

Xyzzy invited me and I invited some people. This was last night and it seemed like it could be interesting. However, this morning when I tried to sign on, I couldn't. I haven't been able to sign on all morning. I hope I was banned or something (shouldn't have joined that Goatse group).

I started a few communities myself, people joined it really quickly. The website is growing fast.

We've taken orkut.com offline as we implement some improvements and upgrades suggested by users. Since orkut is in the very early stages of development, it's likely to be up and down quite a bit during the coming months. None of the information you've entered will be deleted, and none of the connections you've made will be lost. And, if all goes well, you should see some significant improvements when we come back online.

We'll send an email once everything is ready and running again. Thanks for your feedback and for bearing with us as we work our way up the learning curve.

The orkut team

Yeah, thanks. I got back on my computer a while ago and saw that on slashdot. I'm glad it isn't just me.
