There's a big DOS attack on a major east coast internet provider today. Could be your problem.

Yeah. Didn't affect me much but there's potential for a huge problem here.

Yes - so sorry - jhb was correct.  We were unfortunately affected by that large DDoS attach that was happening that afternoon.   Undecided

Yeah, I watched the news and they said this cyber internet thing was going on. No problemo, not much you can do about that.
But riddle me this: Tonight I was waiting for the OD Prescription to drop, the timer reaches 0:00:00, and I am ready. I refresh about 2 dozen times, and the timer says 0:00:00 for five minutes, so I can't order.
Just wondering...

I'd like to blame the internet for that one as well, but that's just simple human error on our part lol. Sorry about that!

Glad you got the color you wanted, it's such a fun yo-yo!
