Technical Difficulties

Sometimes, things just break.  Other times, the 'bots take over.

That happened to us this morning.  One of our automated scripts went all 'Terminator' on us and wiped clean today's listings.  It's taken a couple of hours to resolve, but we have resolved the issue, rebuilt the terminated potion of the database and have reinstated the listings for today.

We realize our down time may have been in inconvenience to those looking for great Free and Bargain books and we apologize.

Not only have we resolved the issue, but we have identified where our automated system needs to be modified to prevent this issue in the future.  We'll be working hard to get that script updated to avoid another 'Terminator' style robot takeover of our system.

Please let us know if you have any continuing issues or questions about our services.
