Planning a Sunday morning brunch surfing Craigslist? Not this weekend. The Internet bulletin board experienced an outage Sunday morning of at least a couple hours that prevented users from accessing listings pages.
Instead of seeing housing or job listings, visitors to the site were greeted with a message that said, “Unable to process request, please try again.” However, the entire site didn’t appear to be affected, as basic site information pages are still accessible.
By 9 a.m. PDT, Craigslist IT staff had recognized they had a problem and posted a new message: “we’re poking around for a fix.” It took some 3 hours before full access to the site was restored.
