They use office 364 too?
 
2020-09-28 8:29:48 PM  
It's time to call 910 then.

Better call 0118 999 881 999 119 7253 instead.

Parscale's wife got her call in just in time.

"They want to defund the police! Just you wait! You'll see!
.... Just wait until they need police for help!"
"Maybe all police should just quit. Let's see how the public likes that!"

Gee. I can't imagine who would be behind this outage.

Wunderbar

Dont worry its just a test run for post-election when the proud boys start killing whoever has dark skin.

Oh no, are we in Joe Biden's America already?

911 is a joke
 
2020-09-28 8:59:25 PM  
Washoe County is one of the affected areas so if you've ever wanted to shoot a man in Reno, just to watch him die, now might be your chance.
 
2020-09-28 8:59:31 PM  
The October surprise will be the disconnection of the internet due to a global cyber attack.

This is just the first stage. Microsoft was screwed up, now 911 offline, and ransomware at health providers.

The internet will need to be "offline" for our protection, you know, probably best to have it off through the second week of November just to be sure.

I didn't think the PSAPs were tied together like that.

It's all tied to a massive MS outage affecting Azure cloud Authenticator services.

Office 365 down too.

Per MS:

Current status: We've identified that reverting the recent change did not alleviate impact to Microsoft services as expected. We're working to explore additional options for mitigation.

Translation: We are totally farked.
 
2020-09-28 9:00:28 PM  
Oh no, now how will I ever get someone to show up an hour late and shoot my dog?
 
2020-09-28 9:00:34 PM  

italie: They use office 364 too?


It's a Leap Year, so they can take a day off and still call it 365.
 
2020-09-28 9:00:54 PM  

I should be in the kitchen: Washoe County is one of the affected areas so if you've ever wanted to shoot a man in Reno, just to watch him die, now might be your chance.


Is there a middle of 5th Avenue there to do it?
 
2020-09-28 9:01:01 PM  
I thought the purge wasn't supposed to start until midnight
 
2020-09-28 9:01:10 PM  
Also happening now: A number of Microsoft users reported outages to Microsoft 365 on Monday, including the popular Outlook email service.

911 is still 88 cheaper than the English version, 999, so at least we're saving money.

Gee. I can't imagine who would be behind this outage.


Do I have to pay less to the tax man? Oh wait. I'll probably have to pay the same or more for some other bullshiat sensitivity something or other.

Wait a sec, without the violent arm there is no downside, is there?

Carry on folks. Keep prodding the cornered dogs. You will get what you ask for. Just feel how right you are. Feel it. You really have to feel.

Why wasn't the Emergency Alert System activated to inform the public and provide telephone numbers that should be used druing the 911 outage?

HELTER SKELTER!!!

While I agree, it would just make my day worse. Today was already a shait show due to it being down. It affects our ability to even log in to local stuff.

Outlook is only popular with idiots.  Exchange is the world's worst email server.  Of course that's why suit types love it.

Yea but we've depreciated a lot. I'm not even sure we're worth a 411 utility line check any more.
 
2020-09-28 9:04:10 PM  
THIS IS AN OUTAGE!
 
2020-09-28 9:04:11 PM  
Azure AD is also having issues, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's the root cause.
 
2020-09-28 9:04:14 PM  
Meh. I called 911 for an ambulance.
They sent pigs.
And stupid people defend this stupidity.
FYAYSF!
 
2020-09-28 9:05:18 PM  
Good thing we don't have several regional and national emergencies at the moment.
 
2020-09-28 9:05:49 PM  

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Azure AD is also having issues, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's the root cause.


I know that's one of our issues. It's not syncing properly.

Genius Trump taught us that if they are ignored they will just go away.

I just checked my work email and saw a helpdesk ticket from a user reporting that her Microsoft products are not connecting.

She sent it using Outlook for Android.
 
2020-09-28 9:08:09 PM  
oi! Thank ya!

They all got pulled over for speeding, 80 in a 40 zone right?

My power's been out for 2 hours but it's just that time of the month.  It happens so often, I have a procedure.  Right now, I'm in the "big-ass inverter on the first deep cycle battery" phase.  So far, I haven't had to go past that as the first battery has kept the fridge/router/modem running for as long as 9 hours.  Next phase would be to swap in the 2nd deep cycle battery.  After that, it gets fuzzy.
 
2020-09-28 9:13:54 PM  
Some poor Microsoft developer is going to be out of a job tomorrow.
 
2020-09-28 9:17:06 PM  

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Just call 0118 999 881 999 119 725 3 instead.


Thanks for introducing me to that sketch. This is why I love Fark.
