US servers are up again

Our US servers were experiencing problems for approximately 3 hours and 13 minutes today, so many notification were not shown during this period. The problem has just been fixed. UK users should not have been affected. Sorry for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.

Brief InvisibleHand Outage In US

InvisibleHand’s popularity has been putting a lot of strain on our servers. As a result there have been a few brief outages today during which US users will not have received price notifications. Our server gurus are working on the problem and normal service should be resumed very soon.

UK users are not affected.

In the mean time, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

UPDATE: The problem has been fixed. Everything should now be working as normal.
