Yahoo Search Goes Down New Years

It is true, Yahoo! search went down at new years. Saturday night my fiance does a search and she complains that Yahoo! is not working. I am like, sure its not working (thinking she is doing something wrong). So I mossy over to the computer and punch in a search term into Yahoo! and presto, I get;


We ran into a temporary problem while performing your search. Please try your search again.

But it wasn't just seen by the two of us. Many at WebmasterWorld and at Cre8asite Forums and DigitalPoint Forums reported it was down. Heck even GoogleGuy tried it out and said;

Weird. For a second I thought April Fools had come early. :) Working fine for me now..

Too funny. This is not the first time a wide spread report of an outage was reported in 2005. On June 13th there was a reported outage at Yahoo! as well. Maybe this was a Y2K plus 6 years problem?
