Netflix Is Mysteriously Down And Bored People Are Increasingly Bored

Are you kinda bored? Want to watch movies on Netflix’s website. Nope. Can’t. It’s mysteriously down.

Apparently, the site started barfing up errors messages early Friday evening. As of this posting, the message reads:

We’re sorry, the Netflix website is temporarily unavailable.

Our shipping centers are continuing to send and receive DVDs , so your movies will be processed as usual. And you can still instantly watch movies via your Netflix ready device.

Our engineers are working hard to bring the site back up as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and, again, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you need further assistance, please call us at 1-866-636-3079.

The great boredom epidemic of Friday, February 19th continues. Yawn.

According to the error, you can still watch Netflix on streaming devices. Hope you put some awesome stuff in your queue recently, or you’re going to be watching all that crap you sort of want to watch but not enough to put it on the real DVD queue.
