If you were one of the millions who were freaked out by Amazon being down recently...we have an answer.
As Amazon explains it, some of its servers were operating rather sluggish, so a tech tried fixing it by taking a few billing servers offline. A fix straight from the company's playbook,
it says. "Unfortunately, one of the inputs to the command was entered incorrectly and a larger set of servers was removed than intended." Whoops.
But all is well in the kingdom today so ORDER AWAY!!!
Engadget reports....As for why the problem took so long to correct, Amazon says that some of its server systems haven't been restarted in "many years."
