Teh Internets Where My Moobies At?

Netflix is totallly fucked this week. Movies haven’t been shipped on Tuesday or Wednesday, and today looks a little iffy, too. Hacking Netflix has only a little bit of news on the matter. One commenter there claims to work for Netflix and says that the internal e-mail system is down along with the shipping system. Now, I’m not an expert on these sorts of things, but this looks like a crippling computer meltdown of some sort, and not the work of hackers.
On the actual Netflix site, Netflix has released an oblique statement (image-captured in part above) regarding these outages that you can see in full here. Apparently, credits will be issued to customers, but a nearly one-week shutdown of a national company can’t be good news for the ol’ bottom line.
Commenters on Hacking Netflix are resorting to poetry in the wake of the tragic loss of movies in the mail:
:( i just want my movies…
i am kinda scared
and wonder if i should wait
on sending the ones i already
got at home back
or wait a week…
