It's always worth complaining else your voice will never be heard. But I don't rate your chances at getting anything out of it.
The message I was typing after scoring them zero wasn't particularly flattering to their company, probably a good thing my voice didn't get heard in the long term!

My 'chimp' got the better of me haha - guess what I'm in the middle of reading? (Well listening to on audible).
Skip that book and go to it's source, thinking fast and slow. Heavy going but 100 times the insight.

Does anyone know how frequently these outages occur? And if they are getting more or less frequent?

My sense is that it is about every 2/3 months, but that could be wildly inaccurate. And they aren't getting more frequent, and in fact, used to be worse.

That is obviously a very partial view, so really interested if others are more informed.

I suppose in the end you just have to be philosophical about it (I lost yesterday, but might easily have won and maybe will next time.

I suppose that's slightly easier if you know you're not trusting to fate every week!

Thanks for any views.

considering it used happen more or less every saturday especially around 3 oclock, they are not that frequent anymore (proper crash about 2 every 4 to 6 weeks, i only really trade horses not sure how may times at other times/markets) .

it was a very a common occurrence, not just crashes, but often grind to snails a place, sp would not be taken, fail to go inplay, prices would fail to appear or strobe /flash.

fortunately they have been much better and certainly a lot more reliable in the last 5 years or so, to the point where you do not expect a crash anymore on saturday as part of a normal day.

I had forgotten the Saturday crashes, thanks.

Yesterday's was weird in some respects - still taking back money but refusing lay money. Lets hope someone pressed the wrong button and it's a one off!

Thanks again.
