I Thought Sunday Was a Day of Rest ...

... but apparently not. Everyone has decided to take Sunday as a day of maintenance. I know NeoBux was down for maintenance earlier and I still can't get in here in the U.S., hours later. Now I can't get ClixSense to come up either. I'm sure it's maintenance or something for them too, because they are a reputable site for sure. So, who else is working on Sunday?

I tried Clixsense and in fact it's down for me too. Neobux comes and goes so maybe it has just too much traffic. I should have done some 'chores' here in the house today - but I've spent almost all day on here It's been such fun as it was really busy compared to some Sundays. Great!

I've been trying NeoBux every 2-3 minutes and I'm still not getting anywhere. I wonder if there is more than one server and some are up and some still down? I've been here in and out. I was watching TV for a while, but husband came in and changed the channel to watch the race.

Washed all the floors, cleaned up the bathroom and kitchen..now I'm exhausted..LOL..yeah some day of "rest"

We had a bad storm come through last night and I had to shut everything down for a while too. Only lost power for a second or two, but today it has gone out for 10-15 seconds at least four times, and the weather is fine. I think they may have had some problem areas last night that they are fixing today. I didn't do any cleaning.

I don't know about the US, but in the UK almost every store and restaurant are open although they do close earlier. Obviously the emergency services and military. Computer staff etc. In fact the number of people that work sundays is quite staggering.

It's pretty much the same here, most retail establishments and restaurants are open every day. You won't find regular businesses open on the weekend, though (banks, lawyers, gov't offices, etc).

Hi my friend, I always work on Sunday and every other day. lol I bet those sites figure that Sundays are the one day that alot of member do take the day off so that is when they do their maintenance procedures. I have come across many online workers that say that do not get online or do any type of work on Sundays. Sorry, but to me it's just another day of the week. Happy MyLotting, Char

It makes a lot of sense why websites would schedule maintenance on Sunday. A lot of people spend time outdoors with their family or go to mass, so not a lot of members would be affected by the maintenance check up. But perhaps it may also be due to less people manning the site on Sunday? Aside from the people who work at restaurants and the mall, I know that corporations don't make their employees work on the weekend. If they do, then those employees ought to be compensated or given another day off during the week.

NeoBux came back up last night finally, but is down again this morning. Whatever it is, they seem to be having major problems. And yes, I agree that they may not have the manpower they need available on a Sunday to fix it.

Today is my day off from work as well. Did I rest? ummm, no. I mowed the lawn, cleaned some of the house, did some laundry, did some posting on some sites and checked my email. Nope, there is no real day of rest any more.

yes ofcourse sunday is the day of rest. so, you have to take rest other than trying to open all those sites. :P sorry it was a bad joke. may be they just wanted to do it in their leisure time that is sunday. so sad that you could not have access for those sites. i think mylot was not down due to maintenance.

I spent the day either reading, writing an article for AC, mylotting, browsing the net, baking muffins for my grandmas wedding anniversary party next weekend (60 years) and generally being a bum because it was raining and i couldnt mow the lawn like i had planned.

I was a bum too. I didn't do any writing for Associated Content (I've been bad this last week or so), but I sure did some myLotting. Things were definitely much busier around here than they normally are on a weekend. I hope my earnings this morning reflect it!

I noticed it seemed busier too. I wondered if it was because its near the months end or not.

Hi me Lady, I'am working full time here in mylot too today. I've set this day as my last date to meet my minimum payout since earning update is late by two days and I'm giving my self some allowance to meet it. Unfortunately since midnight my internet connection is down. I called my ISP and it requires a visit by their tech guys. So I'm am in dial-up now. I have to do a lot of on and offline to get and post. Talk about icing on my cake.

Oh no! Well at least you're past that 500 point mark so you can cut and paste now. I don't know what I'd do if I had to go back to dialup. Last year when I was living in temporary quarters I had to resort to that for a few weeks and it was absolutely the worst weeks of my life. I wasn't even on myLot at the time, I don't think I could do it today.

Well, Sunday usually is not a day of rest for me. I get off work at 7 in the morning, come home and get online for a few hours. Then I get to bed by 11a.m. I'm up again at 7 in the evening, get ready for work, get online for another hour, and then I'm off to work and start at 10.

I too believed that Sunday was a day intended for resting but i was wrong. The seventh day is actually Saturday, which is supposed to be the rest day. But here in the Philippines, we have to work on Saturdays and Sundays to fill the inadequate pay of our main jobs.

Ummm....Maybe they assumed YOU would be resting today, so it would be a good day to do maintenance to their site. Lol!
