Tuesday February 24, 1:19 am Eastern Time America Online service shut down Mon. night
NEW YORK, Feb 24 (Reuters) - America Online Inc's subscriber service was shut down Monday night by an electrical problem, which the company said had a wider impact on the service than a wave of electronic-mail problems last fall. AOL spokeswoman Tricia Primrose told Reuters an electrical problem shut down the entire online service at 9:15 p.m. E.S.T., and customers were able to log onto the service again at 11:45 p.m.
Electronic-mail, however, was still not available as of 12:45 a.m. on Tuesday.
``This is the first time something like this has happened in well over a year,'' Primrose said, noting that the company's much-publicised spate of electronic-mail problems last fall did not affect customers seeking AOL's content, chat, and other services.
AOL did not know early Tuesday what caused the electrical problem, or when electronic-mail would be available.

P.S. School vacation time, I guess. Paik'll be one happy camper when he's back from VI if he hasn't been followin' the market.
This is my third attempt to reply to your last two messages. Computer running very slow, and I could not post a reply to you.
On investigation, found a frickin' teenage ninja neutered turtle stuck cross-wise in my telephone terminal, then found the Asshole_In_WA trapped in my modem. They're trying to ambush me through the telco twisted pair. Luckily I have a navel-fuzz trap in my modem to keep this lint out.
Yeh, it's really getting a little boring, isn't it? Where the hell's Paik?
Say, heard new they found two skeleton's on the desert just outside of Phoenix. There's physical evidence they're Pyorrhea and Knumbnuts, and their pathetic carcasses have been picked clean by the AOL Eagle! No wonder we've not heard from them since Pyorr'ys $70 by 2/7 prediction.
