I think for the first time in Bing's short history, Bing is currently offline and down.

I've been using it all morning here in Japan. It's been working fine for me the whole time, and I'm using it a lot more than usual [webmasterworld.com].

Also see, in the Supporters area...

Wow - What happened to Bing today?
Too many cash back shoppers brought it to its knees?

The cause of the outage was a configuration change during some internal testing that had unfortunate and unintended consequences.

I really appreciate Microsoft admitting this. I'm glad that I'm not the only one that has the occasional screw-up that everyone else notices!

I expect someone got a BIG slap for that. I'm amazed that they don't have a way of testing it before going live.

Don't you wonder what that cost them in lost revenue?

I'm sure they have lot's of internal testing, but, speaking from personal experience, no amount of testing ever accounts for everything.

The intricacies and inter-dependencies that must be within their systems makes my head ache thinking about it.
