And being linked is a good thing because…

I’d like someone to tell me the answer to that.

At Build A Bear, our registers are on a network. This is a good thing…sometimes, but for the past few days, it has been HORRID. Last night, our entire system crashed. We had to phone in gift cards for activiation, credit cards for approval and checks for approval. We could only take cash through the registers! The line stretched from the register all the way back into the “dress me” section. People were cranky, grouchy and downright nasty to us. IT WASN’T OUR FAULT!!!!!! Turns out some dude in Canada (sorry to my Canadian friends) was a lame-o and did something that crashed the North American Network.

When will it be up? My guess was Monday. Manda told me I was optimistic,because they told her they didn’t k now when we’ll be up and running at full force.

Great. Super. During the holidays this has to happen? ARGH.

But, at least MY computer is fixed. The apple store rules once again. New keyboard installed in 10 minutes after I brought my computer in and showed the tech what was going on. No questions asked! YAY!

Well, well, well… It’s almost’s almost there!
