Saavis’ Slashdot (et al) Sinks along with their stock price…

Data Knowledge Center published a post this morning titled Slashdot Down. At the time of this writing, Slashdot had returned to the scene but surely frustrated readers had already felt their frustration and had begun venting their fury.

The outage was confirmed by Netcraft who indicated the problem occurred not only on Slashdot but also on the source code repository SourceForge.net, software release site Freshmeat and merchandise supplier ThinkGeek. All of Sourceforge.net’s sites are hosted by Savvis.

If you don’t believe in coincidence, Savvis shares are down $4.52 to $14.16 a share, a loss of 24 percent from yesterday.
