Exclamation Speaking of NewEgg...

well like he said newegg.com works www.newegg.com doesn't I think it'd have something to do with the DNS or even their .htaccess file, but who the hell knows =/

Yeah, great. I was just about to make a $1000 purchase.

I believe this qualifies as a Homer-grade "AWWWwwwcrap!"

Yeah that's awesome! Now newegg.com gives me this: Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

But who cares, I can just go to www.newegg.com.
I think it's cool that they came here to tell us that.

Looks like they redid a few things to it, like the product reviews rating, and sweepstakes thing.
