11:40 am: IThelp website will be down
12:33 pm: IThelp website is back up.
Departmental mailing lists are definitely abused more often than they are useful. Whatever happened to putting a little "this site is down for routine maintenance" page up? Putting a note on the photocopier saying it will be fixed Monday? That way the only people who know are the people who care, and the rest of us don't get excited about two new email messages only to be let down.
