Barclays Online Offline again
You can take it to the bank. In fact you'll have to
Barclays Online banking has suffered its second weekday working-hours outage in a matter of days, offering only intermittent service for most of this morning according to Register readers and throwing a complete double-six at lunchtime today.
"Live Help" folk on the Barclays site noted that: "We are aware that our online banking service is currently experiencing intermittent technical difficulties... we are facing these difficulties since this morning."
Barclays said it is working hard to resolve the matter as quickly as it can. But the best advice on offer right now is to come back "later in the day".
It's been a bad week for the bank's online service, which went titsup on 22 May for what appeared to be similarly unknown reasons. All this when its trumpeting its new speedy online banking service too - which is actually quite nice when it's working, to be fair. ®
Re: Hook, line and...
I forwarded it straight to Barclays, Hotmail and the police.
Wait, you actually forwarded a spam/scam email to the police? Have you just got your first computer or something? What a complete waste of police time spent processing your totally unecessary email.
Please tell me you don't forward all your spam emails to the police??
Do they want to keep customers?
That AJAX site is already flaky in secured copies of Firefox and Chrome.
I detest having to use Internet Exploder for ANY site!
I have to disagree with the author; bring back the old site; it was less flash, but at least it was reliable!
If this cost me money or goes on much longer, I'll sack them.
Re: Now Chrome says the login screen is not secure
This is what can happen when you put a load balancer in front of a bunch of servers....and only update half of the servers.
