Sorry, Trade Me is temporarily
unavailable due to a technical problem.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will have it back soon.

This is just my own observation, but Trademe's site seems to be very unreliable considering its high profile. I've lost count of the number of occassions when it has been inaccessible over the last year.

On another note, does that cartoon of the kiwi tripping over the cord remind anyone of anything? Back in the 80s, TVNZ used to show a cartoon of a kiwi sitting on top of a television set and crying, during their regular 'technical difficulties'.

I can not recall a time that TradeMe has ever been unavailable - and I use it often.
