Slightly operational; I tried several times earlier today to donate 
to the Red Cross via their website. I was stymied by constant errors 
from their MS SQL Server backend.

Its sad to think of how much in donations they've missed out on, by 
relying on some rinky-dink software.

If anyone has operational contact with the redcross website 
engineering folks, you might want to let them know that its time to 
"reboot the server".
