Sears.com appears to be down…http://www.sears.com/sitedown/busy.htm Message says high-traffic took it down.
Some outdoor work completed. Loving the long weekend. Email pretty quiet except for the alerts on some slow online retail sites.

Sears.com back up, for me. #blackfriday
First black Friday online casualty is Sears.com. Site is down. So much for light traffic online to get the deals.

Will be monitoring website performance of 30 online retailer sites with client’s tech thru holidays. Fast, slow, down..the online wait time
