    Epic fail for DSG

    Unable to get onto Currys.co.uk and when trying to access PCWorld.co.uk* you get the following:

    Site currently down for essential maintenance

    To improve your shopping experience with PC World, we are further upgrading our website. Unfortunately this means that the website is currently unavailable. Please try again later.
    Essential maintenance on Boxing day? One of the busiest online shopping days of the year? Ha ha
    Me thinks you didn't invest in a decent cluster more like!




    *They do have some good deals from time to time.

    And the latest on the dixons website states:

    Sorry for the wait

    There's a long queue at the moment. If you can come back later we should be able to servce you faster.
    12 hour fail at least so far.

    It does amaze me how large companies manage to mess up their website provision on days when they know they will receive massive amounts of traffic.
