A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Yahoo's unreliable servers

I have complained, and we have discussed, Yahoo's unreliable servers.

So is the improvement that the company put into place merely to inform us, the users, that it cannot keep up with demand? Do its servers suffer some form of DoS attack? Certainly, I don't know -- but I am glad that I since migrated to more reliable sources all the services I once trusted with Yahoo!.
