Deep sleep: ObamaCare site goes offline for extended maintenance
Published November 02, 2013

The problem-plagued ObamaCare website will be shut down Saturday night for “extended” repairs, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Technicians have shut down HealthCare.gov during weekends since the site launched Oct. 1 but just for a few overnight hours.

The site will go offline this weekend from 9 p.m. Saturday until 9 a.m. Sunday.

"The HealthCare.gov tech team is performing extended maintenance this weekend to improve network infrastructure and make enhancements to the online application and enrollment tools,” agency spokeswoman Joanne Peters said Saturday.   

The Obama administration says Americas can still apply for insurance coverage by calling a toll-free number available around the clock.

In recent weeks, the administration has brought in outside experts to assist in getting the site running so Americans can enroll before premiums kick in January 1, 2014.

Officials say their goal is to eliminate such problems as volume-related crashes, slow response times and incorrect information before the insurance policies kick in January 1, 2014.

They also have set a goal of getting the site running smoothly by month's end and releasing enrollment numbers by mid-November, as Capitol Hill lawmakers hold hearings about the extent of the problems before the site launch and who knew about them.

"extended mainentance"?

 :silly:

Maintenance implies the program is already working. I think "revamp" is the better word to describe this disaster. I'm not about to call that number after seeing what Obama's goons did to that one reporter.

12 hours offline is extended maintenance, eh? 

Ya know, every time Windows issues another maintenance package, inevitably they end up issuing several more to fix the problems the first update brought to light.  Whatever they are doing to the Obamacare website isn't going to accomplish a whole lot with just a twelve hour shutdown.  You can't even test the patches you just installed in that little time.
