the ramp drive: official pause

November 20th, 2007 (09:19 pm)

Your latest ramp drive update: as I note in the main ramp drive post, I am officially calling for a pause for now. I've talked with the guys at Amazon again; they confirmed they're having substantial technical issues, and right now those issues are preventing them from processing payments or even determining how many payments are awaiting processing for a given account. And the figures Amazon's system is coughing up when I try to look are wrong, so I can't depend on them. This means I only have a very vague idea of how amazingly generous everyone has been.

So, let's take a breather for now, and wait to see what happens when Amazon gets its act together. Thanks for your generosity and your patience. Once I know what's actually happening, we can resume the drive.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

So, in fact you were WRONG in your previous post, and our generosity has, in fact, broken amazon!

I do not know how long I will be in town. Through next week at the very least, probably more.

You have my cell, yes? Call me!
