They had a software failure this morning that created false inventory values on the site. Sorry.
I guess it's better than their site being hacked.......or did they?
They had some sort of "hack job" last summer didn't they?
Temporarily, or permanently?
I'm pretty sure it's just temporarily. Their site says that they're updating their site.
Though if you are on their email list, you can backdoor your way into the site. Interesting.
The site was running crappy yesterday
We experienced a server glitch that updated our site with a whole lot of product that we don't actually have in stock. We are currently updating our site with an accurate copy of our stock.
Cool Ted .... how bout some Fire Dance ... it's my birthday for petes sake ... ya dont have to give it to me ... I'll buy it .... just get them SG guys into production ! Jeez !
If you are on our email list, and get through our site through the back door, and order 10lbs of FVF and 10lbs of Stonehaven you will get a very sad email from me.
Happy birthday!! I'll keep an eye out for some Firedance for ya!
If it wasn't for this site I would have ordered at least one pipe today. There list of estate pipes were pretty impressive. And some pretty amazing prices to boot.
You chose a very alarming title for this thread, Moo. For about ten seconds I thought the beginning of the end was finally upon us.
I just renamed it.
and they're still "off-line". Are they open for business? or in a grand massive inventory count on all things smokingpipes.com ? Bummer about the server glitch. I guess a system restore to the latest update prior to server intervention wouldn't work..............that's gotta be very frustrating and amounts to loss of business.
P.S. Mighty nice offer on the FDF for Ruff-man. That's great smoke! BBF w/berries! Mmmmmmmmmmmm
I still put a lot of faith in SP. It's not
like I don't have any other tobies to
smoke. (apologies to Ted for using
I was about to put in an order last night, then noticed that previously out of stock cigars and tobacco were now "in-stock". I held off and then ordered when the site was back in proper form.
The recovery from a falter indicates the robustness of the system, all problems rolled back as if it was only a mere hiccup.
We're back online now. Thanks for the patience, fellas. It's time like these that I'm glad we're all pipe smokers and not high-strung, pushy zombie consumerists.
I never consume Zombies..........
Zombie pushers. (Every since the apocalypse I really hate 'em.)
They're not too bad with a nice Chianti.......
