Problems? We ain't got no stinkin' problems!

Anyone wondering how book sales have been on the assorted venues only needs to peruse the various discussion boards. The numerous non-book related threads tell it all. Appears only Biblio is without troubles.

System function and dysfunction:

System status update
As of 10:45 AM Pacific time on Wednesday 4/12, all problems with our systems and databases have been resolved. Full functionality has been restored to all tools on the Seller Hub including Add Items and Pricing tools. Please try your procedures and let us know (via the Contact link from the Seller Hub) if you still see any problems. Please include as much detail as possible when contacting us. We appreciate your patience while we were experiencing these issues.

As an aside- the site has been pretty dead. I wonder if anyone even noticed...

Greetings from,
We will be conducting a planned maintenance activity on Sunday, April 16th from 03:30 until 04:30 Pacific which will have the following impacts:
- Customers will not be able to access Auction and zShops pages on
- Access to some parts of Your Seller Account will be unavailable.
- The Sell an Item pipeline will be unavailable.
- The delivery of "Sold - Ship Now" e-mails will be halted.
- The ability to retrieve order reports for both and sellers will be unavailable.
Orders (other than the ones indicated above) will continue to be taken on the sites and will queue in our systems. "Sold - Ship Now" e-mails will be sent and order reports will be available upon completion of this event.
We will provide an update upon the successful completion of this activity.
Thank You,

Of course- this message comes on the heels of 17 messages on Azon regarding "unplanned events" and their resolutions. Talk about creaive use of the English language. They must have hired a creative writer for that job.

Biblio will be performing routine scheduled maintenance on the website from 11:30 PM EST, April 11th, 2006 until 2:00 AM EST, April 12th, 2006.
During this time, the website and FTP will be unavailable.
We thank you in advance for your patience and hope you will let us know if you have any questions.

Dunno- not a seller there and don't have any actual correspondence from them, and I really, really don't want to check the dreaded Insider list, either for personal complaints.
